We all have a responsibility to help protect each other from COVID-19. In order to ride with Lyft, you’ll now be required to follow a new set of health and safety rules — and drivers will, too.

Get ready for your next ride with this quick video of top tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), part of our new Health Safety Program.

To get the new safety experience, make sure you have the
latest version of the app.

What You’ll Need To Do:

Stay home if you have COVID-19

If you feel sick, staying home is the best way to help contain it and protect other people.

Wear your face covering

To help slow the spread of the virus, put your face covering on before you get in the car, and wear it for the whole ride.

Keep the car — and your hands — clean

Sanitize your hands before touching anything in the car. And please don’t leave trash behind.

Sit in the back seat

Out of respect for your driver, put some protective distance between yourself and the driver’s seat.

Keep the car windows open

When possible, do your part to help increase air circulation in the car.
