Face Mask Exemption Cards

Plastic Card, Holder & Lanyard

Beginning 24 July 2020, Face Masks or Face Coverings are required to be worn in shops throughout the United Kingdom.


WireNews has produced a Face Mask or Face Covering Exemption card that meets the relevant requirements and will reduce the chance of confrontation with shop staff or 'Karens'. The cost per card (including a black plastic holder and a black lanyard as shown and Second-Class "Signed For" Royal Mail and VAT) is £5.90.


Exemption Cards


Some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. These cards are NOT ID cards.


This could be in the form of an exemption card, badge or even a home-made sign. This is a personal choice and is not necessary in law.


Those who have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face-covering should not be routinely asked to give any written evidence of this. Written evidence includes exemption cards. (Source:

You must specify the reason for your exemption when ordering your card. If you do not provide a reason WireNews will print your card as shown with "Wearing or removing a face covering would cause severe distress".
