What measures are NCMC staff taking to assist people with medical conditions which prevent mask wearing? You can’t expect people with severe asthma, claustrophobia, heart problems, lung disease, breathing problems, PTSD, severe anxiety to wear masks. So do we get an I.D. or some kind of documentation so we don’t have to tell students and staff multiple times a day that we are exempt and avoid being threatened or harassed? Do we just drop out because we will be banned from school?
