Face Covering Exemption Information Posted on 24 Jul 2020

Face covering exemption

 

We understand that the general public may be anxious about the wearing of face masks, however, GPs are not contractually obliged, or in a position, to provide exemption letters or certificates for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering.

The guidance suggests there is no requirement for the public to provide evidence, medical or otherwise, for exemption therefore a self declaration from the individual should be sufficient.

For more information please visit the GOV.UK website for further information on the use of face coverings:
