c2c launches exemption badge for people who can’t wear face coverings

It is hoped the badges will make c2c customers feel more comfortable 

A local train operator has launched a new exemption badge for their customers who are unable to wear face coverings. 

People with conditions like asthma as well as visible and non-visible disabilities do not have to wear masks. 

As a result, c2c has implemented a new badge to help them feel comfortable while travelling by train. It is similar to their baby on-board badge scheme for pregnant women. 

Badges can be collected at all c2c stations (credit: c2c)

“We have launched this new exemption badge to support those customers who are unable to wear a face covering,” said c2c Managing Director, Julian Drury.

“We know some people may feel more comfortable wearing something that says they are exempt from this rule and also allows our staff as well as the British Transport Police to know who should and shouldn’t be wearing a face covering.” 

Face coverings have been mandatory on public transport in England since 15 June. However, some groups are exempt from the rule, including children under the age of 11, people with disabilities or breathing problems and anyone travelling with someone who lip-reads.

People who are not exempt can be fined £100 by the British Transport Police if they travel without a face covering.

The badges can be collection at all c2c stations or you can apply for one online here
