Advisory: Mask Exemptions May Subject Physicians to Discipline

The Medical Board of California (Board) would like to inform licensees and the public that a physician who grants a mask or other exemption without conducting an appropriate prior exam and without a finding of a legitimate medical reason supporting such an exemption within the standard of care may be subjecting their license to disciplinary action.

The Board encourages the public to file a complaint with the Board if they feel that a physician is granting mask exemptions inappropriately. Complaints can be submitted on the Medical Board of California’s website.
