Whenever I jump in an Uber, Lyft or taxi, one of the first things I do is look to see if the driver is sick. If they’re visibly unwell (it’s happened), I say no thanks and get another one. If I don’t notice right away, however, and the driver starts coughing or sneezing, I immediately open the window even if it’s boiling hot or freezing cold outside. You might think this is a no-brainer, but you’d also be surprised how many of my friends tell me that they’ve ridden with a sick driver and left the window up. If the driver looks at me funny for rolling down the window, I just tell him or her I’m about to get on a plane or just got off of one and need the fresh air.
