Mask and Face Covering Exemption Information

Posted on July 15th, 2020

We are aware that some patients might be understandably anxious about the Government’s recent announcements around the use of face masks/coverings in various public settings.

Practices are reporting increases in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face masks in various public settings.

GPs are unfortunately not in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing a face mask.

The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them (eg bus driver).

Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.

Some transport providers are providing evidence of exemptions themselves, see for example this information from Arriva.
