Face coverings exemption requests

Some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. Please note that GP practices in Bradford district and Craven do not provide exemption cards or letters of support to people who do not feel able to wear a face covering.

Government guidance suggests there is no requirement to supply evidence for exemption, as it should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person who has asked.

GP 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.

The Government have provided a template for people who may feel under pressure when out and about to prove that they are exempt from wearing a face covering. You can download a face covering exemption template from the GOV UK website here.
