The NI Executive have proposed changes to regulations regarding exemptions from the requirement to wear a face covering.

Since 27 December 2021, an individual who is exempt from the requirement to wear a face covering must be able to prove this to a relevant person, such as a police or enforcement officer. There is currently a grace period.

Disability Action and the Northwest Forum of People with Disabilities would like to hear the views of d/Deaf and disabled people regarding changes to regulations on face coverings exemptions on Tuesday 11 January at 12 noon online. 

We would also like to know if you have any recommendations as to how these regulations could be improved.
