The rideshare company is thanking people for not riding with them at the moment.

Rideshare company Uber has released a new campaign thanking people for not riding with them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign features home clips of people doing different activities at home during self-isolation including yoga, art skateboarding indoors.

An Uber spokesperson said the rideshare provider's number one priority was safety.

"We work closely with public health authorities in each state, and have processes to temporarily remove an individual’s access to the Uber apps based on the advice of health authorities," the spokesperson says.

"We are supporting driver and delivery partners who are diagnosed with COVID-19 or personally placed in self-isolation by a public health authority due to risk of spreading COVID-19. People in these situations will receive compensation for a period of up to 14 days. We believe this is the right thing to do.

"Driver-partners are also receiving in app messages and emails reminding them of basic steps they can take to help prevent the spread of the virus which draws on advice from public health authorities.

"We have advised riders to only sit in the backseat, and have in-app messages encouraging people to limit the spread and travel only if necessary.”

Uber has committed to providing 10 million rides and food deliveries to healthcare workers, seniors, and people in need, free of charge.

It has started with free rides to help healthcare workers get to their jobs, and free meals to help keep them going.
