Use a lanyard or medical information form to let people know you are vulnerable to COVID-19.

'Give me space' lanyard

During the height of COVID-19, some people wore lanyards to let others know they were vulnerable to infection. You might prefer to still use a lanyard on occasion, especially when in crowded spaces. A lanyard asks others to avoid coming close to you, thereby reducing the risk of passing on an infection.

Order a complete lanyard with a printed card using the form below. Or, if you already have a lanyard, you can print the 'give me space' card to use with your lanyard.
