Suspensions for Uber, Lyft drivers and riders exposed to virus
Uber might block drivers and passengers from using the ride-hailing service if they’ve caught the coronavirus disease or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
“[W]e may temporarily suspend the accounts of riders or drivers confirmed to have contracted or been exposed to COVID-19,” Uber said in a post on the company’s corporate site.
Uber last month suspended 240 customer accounts in Mexico because of the coronavirus. And last week, an Uber driver in Queens, New York, tested positive for COVID-19 and has been hospitalized. His account has been suspended, the company told CBS MoneyWatch.
