For example, National Car Rental sent an e-mail message to me earlier today, Tuesday, August 4, 2020 with the following statement, which I have yet to find at its official Internet web site at the time this article was written: “To protect you, our employees and our community, face coverings are now required inside all National locations.”
Masks and coverings for the nose and mouth are also required of both customers and employees at all Enterprise Rent a Car locations.
Starting July 27, we’re requiring customers and employees to wear masks at our locations. This is one more step we’re taking to ensure your Thrifty rental is the safest way to travel. Learn more: https://t.co/Ze6o0o3gdbpic.twitter.com/c6LNF18NdE
At the time this article was written, I have not yet seen any indication that Avis, Budget, or Alamo are following suit — nor has any official policy yet been crafted by the American Rental Car Association, which is an organization that represents the rental car industry in the United States — but employees of all of the rental car companies are required to wear masks or cloth coverings for their noses and mouths at their rental facilities.
However, do not be surprised if they follow suit by adopting policies which require customers to wear masks or cloth coverings for their noses and mouths at their rental facilities sometime as soon as within the next week…
