Face Coverings & Masks

Cloth face coverings are compulsory on public transport and are also  recommended where social distancing is not possible (e.g. shops). The Government is encouraging people to make their own face coverings.

However, that’s not always possible and we’re keen to hear from members who are struggling to source face coverings (masks). We’ve had a donation of some face masks and face coverings. Let us know if you’d like one by emailing info@disabilitypartnershipcalderdale.org

Exemption: Note, some people are exempt from wearing face coverings due to health conditions – find out more here, including downloadable/printable cards you can wear to explain your exemption. There’s also an excellent guide to Face Masks & Face Mask Exemptions from Disability Horizons the online disability magazine.

Lip Reading Masks: There are special masks available for people who rely upon lip reading. They have a clear panel in them – find out where to buy them or how to make one yourself here.
