From 31 May you are encouraged to apply for the new mask exemption card.
A new process for mask exemptions, the Communication Card, will be available via the Ministry of Health (MoH). If you have an existing communication card, it remains valid. Both these new personalised exemption cards and current non-personalised cards issued by the MoH are optional as an aid to avoiding discrimination. For those affected, you will not have to go through the process of getting a new card if you do not want to, however the old cards will not have the legitimacy of the new cards. More info here.
