COPD or other respiratory conditions, e.g. asthma or severe distress, prevent many thousands from wearing face coverings
Next week, Face Masks will now be required to be worn in cinemas, churches as well as in shops throughout the United Kingdom.
WireNews has produced a Face Mask Exemption card that meets the relevant requirements and will reduce the chance of confrontation with shop staff or 'Karens'. The cost per card (including Second-Class "Signed For" Royal Mail and VAT) is £5.90.
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: Gov.uk)
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" (as shown). Possible Reasons (Not limited to these suggestions):
