Don’t wait for clear facemasks – make your own sign

Seen on Facebook: “The mandatory face mask order has caused a lot of concerns for my fellow deaf community members. Deafness is invisible, and people will assume you can hear.

“Sister and I ran some personal errands, and we appreciated the patience people displayed after we showed them our cards and they accommodated our needs.

“Here’s our tip, make your own card, it will help you.”

Comment: It would also be great for people who have medical or other exemptions from wearing a mask to make their own cards.
