Unsure if your medical issue makes you exempt from wearing a mask? 🤷‍♀️

Check out some examples of the conditions making people lawfully exempt from wearing face masks.

🛑No. You do not need a medical certificate or doctors letter to prove your condition/issue in MOST circumstances. *Adelaide Airport is the only exception to this we have found*

🛑No. you do not need to tell people/stores/police or anyone what your medical issue is when stating you are exempt if asked to wear a mask.

✅Always state you are exempt if you are. Instead of confusing businesses and their staff by not stating it if they ask you to wear a mask or refuse service.
