Uber will soon require their drivers and riders to wear a mask.

Executives decided last week that it will require face coverings when using the platform in certain countries, including the U.S., according to CNN.

The requirement is expected to be rolled-out in the coming weeks.

Uber said it's also in the process of developing technology to hold drivers and riders accountable.

The company said it's trying to get masks to drivers as soon as possible, but it may take some time because supplies are limited.
