The Government website clearly states that the public should not be asked to provide written evidence of their exemption from wearing a face covering, and has now included templates for badges and cards that the public can download.
Some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. This could be in the form of an exemption card, badge or even a home-made sign.
This is a personal choice and is not necessary in law.
Those who have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering should not be routinely asked to give any written evidence of this. Written evidence includes exemption cards.
