Face Coverings In Public Posted on 15 Jul 2020

Guidance note for patients requesting exemption letters

 

 

We are aware that some patients might be understandably anxious about the Government’s recent announcements around the use of 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 on exemptions suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption therefore it is sufficient for an individual to self-declare this.

Government advice on the use of face coverings can be found here:
