There's a new warning about fake mask exemption cards being printed out or bought online.
The Justice Department says the bogus cards state that under the "Freedom to Breathe Agency," the person who presents that card is exempt from wearing a face covering during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It states, "Wearing a face mask poses a mental and/or physical risk to me, and goes on to say they do not have to disclose their condition."
The cards even have the Department of Justice logo printed on them.
Federal officials warn these cards are not issued or endorsed by Justice Department.
