I have asthma…I am claustrophobic…I have a breathing disorder; do I have to wear a face covering? Do I need a doctor’s note?

The ordinance states, “the following people are exempt from the ordinance…any person who has an underlying medical condition or is under 8 years old…or who is unable to remove a face covering without assistance of others.” The ordinance does not place the burden of proof on any person claiming an underlying medical condition.  A doctor’s note is not required.
