I have tried to get used to wearing a face covering/ mask and I cannot do it, what should I do?

If you absolutely cannot wear a face covering/ mask, but your country has made it compulsory, you should check whether there are any exceptions for people living with lung disease to not wear a mask. Many countries do have this system, but they might not be very clear about it so check carefully with your local government or respiratory organisation. If it is not a legal requirement to wear a face covering/ mask in your country, then it is okay to leave the house without one. You should always consider the risks, and if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has, then you should not leave the house for the time recommended by your government.
