All Uber drivers and passengers in North America will have to wear a mask as of Monday if they want to continue using the ride-sharing service.

Uber drivers and passengers will be able to cancel rides if either party does not have their face covered, according to a company statement.

And passengers will now be forbidden from riding in the front seats of Uber vehicles.

Uber Eats food delivery drivers will also have to provide selfies of themselves wearing masks before they can make a delivery.

Drivers, passengers and delivery drivers will all have to confirm that they are following public health directives such as washing their hands.

People who violate public health directives repeatedly may be barred from using Uber services, according to the company's statement.
