New rules require people to wear a face covering or mask in most public indoor settings – scroll down below to find out more. If you don’t adhere to the rules, you can be fined up to £200 for not doing so.
But, if you have a medical condition or disability that makes it difficult for you to wear one, you can self-certify as being exempt from having to wear one (scroll down for more details on who these apply to).
To help ensure disabled people don’t get fined when they’re genuinely exempt, we’ve created an exemption card.
Our mask exemption card comes on a lanyard or badge clip. It is a durable, portable pass that you can wear around your neck or pinned to your coat or top while travelling, in shops and or anywhere you need to.
It provides staff and others around you with immediate and simple-to-understand information regarding your mask exemption.
The bright red lanyard has ‘MASK EXEMPT’ written in white capital letters so it is easy to see. The credit card-sized ID badge further explains your mask exemption as being due to a “disability/health condition”. Both can be shown and read at a safe distance.
There is also the option to purchase the ID card with a badge clip instead of a lanyard, which can be worn on shirts, tops or coats.
The pocked-sized design of the ID, badge clip and lanyard means it can be stored in your coat or bag making it easy to access and put around your neck or pin to you.
The lanyard is 20mm wide and made of recycled materials. It has a ‘safety break’ clip that detaches in case the lanyard gets caught or tangled. It can also be easily reclosed. The ID card comes in an open-faced ID cardholder.
You can choose:
- Mask exemption travel card plus lanyard plus badge clip
- Mask exemption travel card plus lanyard
- Mask exemption travel card plus badge clip only.
All the face mask exemption cards with lanyards or face mask exemption cards with a badge clip come fully assembled.
If you cannot wear a face covering, you might want to consider our ‘Crystal Gaze‘ face shield. It is extremely lightweight (28g), has superb visibility and gives you some protection from the sneezes and coughing of others.
Please note that although our card gives an easy visual aid to staff of your exemption, as people can self-certify, it’s not an absolute guarantee that you won’t be stopped or asked for more information. We would recommend that you also have proof of or information about your condition with you, just in case you are asked for it.
These cards are ONLY designed for people with a GENUINE ‘legitimate or reasonable reason‘ for not wearing a mask, as listed under Government guidelines. If you do not have a valid reason, you’re likely to be fined.
Scroll down below for full information on the new face mask rules, official exemptions and how these might apply to you.
We’re now also selling the face mask exemption cards in bulk. They’re perfect for businesses, organisations, workplaces, schools, colleges and more.
Because we are supplying these to many different organisations, schools and agencies, our new batch of cards does not feature the Disability Horizons logo. This has no bearing on the authority or the card.
