Face Covering Exemption Information

The law requires everyone to wear a face covering.

Face coverings are crucial in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and helping to protect others.

You are more at risk of the complications of COVID-19 if you suffer from asthma, COPD or if you are overweight.

You may self declare as exempt but there a very few medical reasons for not wearing a face mask. Therefore, the GPs will not issue exemption certificates. Please do not ring to ask for one.
