Vincent Jennings, CEO of the CSNA has written to the government to highlight the issue of non-mask wearing customers.
He says that the “extreme distress” provision category in the new regulations is being used by “non maskers” to enter shops and demand service putting staff and other customers in danger.
Jennings suggested that those with genuine medical reasons for not wearing a face mask should carry some type of badge to signify their entitlement.
“Our members are incurring significant levels of bad behaviour from a small cohort of people intent on disruption for their own personal/political ‘gain’,” Jennings said.
On the basis that the continuation of the ‘extreme distress’ provision in SI296 emboldens this cohort, Jennings requested that the Department of Health remove this provision.
