Uber on Monday said the riders who have been tagged for not wearing a mask on a previous trip will have to take a selfie showing them wearing a mask, in order to book their next trip.

“At Uber, we believe accountability is a two-way street. Earlier this year, we designed innovative technology to ensure that drivers were wearing masks before accepting trips. Today, we’ve devised similar technology for riders.”
