Face Coverings Bylaw 1013-20 Exemption Card

Medical exemptions available for Face Coverings Bylaw 1013-20

Face Coverings Bylaw 1013-20 Exemption Cards are available through the Town of High Level.

The cards will be issued to individuals who have pre-existing medical conditions that would make wearing a face covering a hardship. The cards would be registered to a specific person, and could be verified by checking with the Town.

Anyone interested in obtaining a card is asked to fill out an application form that will then need to be signed by a physician. No specific medical information will be tracked or retained by the Town. Applications can be scanned and emailed or delivered to the Town Office in person, and cards can be picked up from the Town Office or mailed out.

Exemption cards will be required for anyone who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons.

Anyone with an exemption card will be expected to carry it with them when shopping without a mask and could be asked to provide it to business staff or Community Peace Officers for verification if necessary.

An exemption card is good for the duration of the Bylaw. Lost or stolen cards need to be reported in order for a new card to be issued.

The exemption cards are free of charge.

The Cards are only intended to exempt local residents from the Town’s Face Coverings Bylaw, which is not active while face coverings remain part of the Public Health Order.

As a reminder, the Town has created a helpful poster to remind Exemption Card holders that their cards will not permit them to enter businesses without a face covering.
