I'm sure you'll be bringing a note from your doctor to prove you have a legitimate medical reason to not wear a mask. Otherwise don't expect them to let you board.

Sure. Does the TSA require a doctors note for medical issues? Who do I show the doctors note to? The pilot, the FA, GA?

If you have a serious enough medical reason to NOT wear a mask on a plane right now, SHOULD you go on a plane?

You'll most likely need to show it to everyone whilst traveling in this new topsy turvsy pandemic world of ours.

​​​​​​Show it to anyone who tells you to wear a mask.

I would show it to the same person that checks the medical credentials of all the dog owners and miniature horse owners who bring their pets into the passenger cabin.
