Face covering exemption scheme

Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action is working in partnership with Dundee City Council to provide an exemption letter to people who have a health condition or disability who are unable to wear a face covering safely in order to support any difficulties they may be having. 

People may have an acceptable reason not to wear a face covering if:

They have a health condition where a face covering would be inappropriate because it would cause pain, severe distress or anxiety

They cannot apply a covering and wear it in the proper manner safely and consistently

They need to take medication

They need to communicate with another who relies on lip reading

They need to eat or drink

They are a child under the age of five

You can contact the council’s Customer Services on 433558 for more information or complete the online form at to request a letter.
