Ever since someone pointed this out to me, I can no longer take Ubers or Lyfts.

A great majority of drivers apparently do not have their masks on between riders. Most of them put their masks on as riders get in their cars. I have no reason to doubt this behavior as I do this with my own car.  Sure it's more comfortable without.

Drivers, please please please. We are in this together. Let's put aside politics or whatever you are trying to prove, and wear a mask during your entire shift.

    Hthat's a no for me.  I'm vaccinated. My car that I pay payments,  taxes, insurance and maintenance on.   I wash and clean my car out every single day before my shift. Sanitize seats and handles inside and out every ride.   WE DO NOT get paid going in-between passengers.  We are not in this together.  And you can not make anyone do such. I carry my vaccination card with my insurance/registration and voluntarily show each passenger.  Happily I might add.  It's a common curiosity on my part to my passengers.  Plus I shower, wash my hair brush my teeth and wear clean clothes everyday not only for my own personal hygiene but I'm in a confined space with others of MY OWN choosing.  So wearing a mask inside my own car with no passengers/no pay etc. Is beyond anything I'll ever do.  How about having the uber run a background on YOU the passenger, show a picture to us a driver in the application and where you are going…

Not to mention you empty out all your contents from your bags/person to make sure you don't have drugs, weapons, or paraphernalia?  I mean since "we're all in this together"

      Careful and intelligent people like you, I don't think, anyone is worried about. I think the OP is talking about the "others." 

      Just to add, one could still be a carrier even after being vaccinated. To add further, there's probably a stat on how long it takes for the air in the car to be 100% circulated. I think this post does carry a helpful message.  (for example, I didn't know it's 70% when the carrier isn't wearing a mask.

        Every post and infographic has a bias, and for this one, I think it's obvious the "70%" bit. What this image is trying to convey is "if you may have covid, please wear a mask."  The other two numbers are there for effect.
