Uber Asks CDC To Classify Drivers As Essential So They Can Access Vaccine Quicker
Uber asked the U.S. Centers of Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to designate rideshare and delivery drivers as non-health essential workers
Uber, in a letter to the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, said its drivers provided critical transportation for essential workers and allowed others to stay home and order food.
“Early access to a vaccine would help drivers and delivery people continue to play their essential role while also reducing the risk that they may inadvertently contract, or possibly transmit, the virus” - Letter, Signed by Uber’s Head of Federal Affairs, Danielle Burr.
