RNZCGP Mask Exemption Guidance

September 8th, 2021

If patients have a disability or health condition and can’t wear a face covering safely or comfortably, they are exempt from wearing one. Some people may feel more comfortable showing something official that says they don’t have to wear a face covering, so the Ministry of Health has designed an exemption card that people can use. The use of this card is self-regulated and decided upon by the individual. 

People who would like an exemption card sent to them should email info@dpa.org.nz. We WILL NOT be writing mask exemption letters.
