Facemasks and Personal Protective Equipment
The use of masks may be a barrier for some people with disabilities, particularly for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, because masks eliminate lip reading as an effective form of communication. For the safety of everyone, the Minnesota Dept. of Health provides Best Practices for Masks: Considerations for People with Disabilities and Special Health Needs (PDF).
