Disability face mask exemption not being made clear

A whole load of orders telling people they "must wear a face mask", are widely ignoring the disability exemption.

Face masks will make life very difficult for many deaf people and those with a whole range of conditions where a face mask will obstruct breathing. 

I was shocked to get an email from Transport for London that completely failed to mention exemptions at all.

Whilst it can be difficult to pin down the factual and/or legal basis for the raft of measures purporting to "combat the virus", there is official guidance here from the Department of Transport.

Remember you don't have to wear a face mask if you are "disabled".  In the absence of any other definition it should be safe to rely on the one in the on in the Equality Act 2010
