The Scottish Government has produced a face covering exemption card for those who are unable to wear a face covering.

The scheme aims to make people who are exempt from wearing a face covering feel more confident and safe when accessing public spaces and using public services.

Cabinet Secretary for Social Security and Older People Shirley Anne Somerville said: “Everyone who can do so is legally obliged to wear a face covering where it is mandated by law.

“But there are some people who cannot, due to health conditions, disabilities or other special circumstances where a face covering may cause difficulty or distress.

“Discrimination against people in this situation is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

“We have developed this card in conjunction with a range of equality stakeholders as something which can clearly communicate to others if you are exempt from the regulations.”

Both physical and digital cards are available.
