- There may be a small number of individuals who are medically exempt from wearing a face covering. Those exemptions may include, but do not automatically qualify:
- Individuals who have a documented health condition which causes trouble breathing or they are unable to take on or remove on their own unassisted.
- Individuals with medical conditions, intellectual or developmental disabilities, mental health conditions, or other sensory sensitivities that prevent the individual from wearing a face covering.

- In the case of an exemption due to religious reasons, those will also be handled case by case. Please consult with your building administrator.
