Mask Wearing Exemptions?

August 15, 2020

From the State Department of Health website

The answer is FALSE.

Fake cards and flyers, claiming that the bearer is exempt from mask-wearing regulations, have appeared in Hawaii. The cards, which some people have purchased online or printed from websites, may have official-looking logos or government insignias on them. They claim that the person carrying them has a physical or mental condition covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that makes them unable to wear a face covering.

The United States Department of Justice has issued a statement about these fake mask exemptions, explaining that these cards and flyers are fraudulent. People have tried to use these cards to avoid having to wear a mask in public places that require them, such as some stores and restaurants. The cards are not issued by the U.S. government and are not backed by the ADA.
