Your suspicion that some [you've no evidence that it is 'many'] non-mask wearers are not exempt is, of course, totally innaplicable in any specific case you will encounter of a non-mask wearer, as the nature of hidden disability generally precludes being able to judge whether the person is disabled by looking at them. There have been several posters on this thread who seem unable to grasp this, and, for whatever reason, they seem to have the same urge as you to insist that the disabled must wear an identifying symbol e.g.

 

I’ll ask you again.

 

Why can’t they?

Are you ok with non exempt people pretending to be exempt?

Personally I've opposed compulsory masking from the start [for reasons given multiple times on this thread] so I can hardly object to that small number of non-mask exempt individuals who don't wear masks.  To the extent that masks do protect, the fact that the vast majority of the population have embraced masking, is sufficient IMO.

I'll tell you again- they can [wear a lanyard]- they choose not to. They have good reasons for their choice. They are not breaking any rules. Anyone pressuring them to wear identifying symbols is breaking rules.

Presumably the implication being that mask exempt people not wearing a mask are being selfish??

That's entirely your choice and your good ladies choice of course but if you both decide not to wear one how does that make you selfish?

Courtesy. To help others. To clarify. 
 

There are many reasons for wearing a lanyard if you can’t wear a mask.

 

I don’t like wearing a mask, but I do it because it is helpful. We are still in the midst of a massive health crisis.

How is making people wear a lanyard displaying courteousness, helping others and for what reason do they need to provide clarification?

 

if i disagree with something you do or can’t do - am I entitled to demand you wear a lanyard to show why you are/n’t doing it?

Scenario- shop assistant/manager 'excuse me sir/madam, have you got your mask'

reply- 'I am exempt'.

A corteous response. A very clear response.

There was a big rally in London today of antilock FREEDOM types.

 

Hardly a mask to be seen in the crowds.
