Uber and Lyft Have Decided to join Airlines in Ending
 The US Mask Mandate

Following a federal verdict that struck down the law, ride-hailing giants Uber and Lyft lifted mask restrictions for users and drivers on Tuesday.

"You may now ride without a mask and utilise the front seat if necessary," Uber tweeted.

"While the use of a mask is still advised, we have changed our Covid safety regulations. Let's keep moving forward in a safe manner."

Lyft, Uber's competitor, also announced that masks would be optional

According to Lyft, the firm will also eliminate a limitation on riders in the front seat and will no longer consider health and safety grounds, such as not wearing a mask, as a cause to cancel a ride.

"We understand that everyone's comfort level varies, and anybody who wishes to continue wearing a mask is invited to do so," Lyft wrote in a blog post.

On Monday, US federal judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled that the mask regulation exceeds the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's legislative jurisdiction.

Following the verdict, many major airlines, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines, suspended mask requirements for domestic flights and several international flights.
