    Hey Tess,

    Per Prometric, cloth face coverings are acceptable. You shouldn't have an issue with a scarf as long as it completely covers your nose and mouth. Here is a link from Prometric's website on this topic  - https://www.prometric.com/covid-19-update/test-center-policies

    Hello Tess, I recently finished my last exam (PDD) and it was during this pandemic. As we all know Prometric requires using a mask all the time before, during, and after the exam. The first thing I did was to look for a comfortable mask since I knew I was going to use it for a prolonged time span. Second, I looked for a mask that was safe and comfortable enough that you could breathe through pleasantly. I think this might play a little on how well you perform on your exam. And third, my wife gave me a trick for those of us who need to use glasses. The hot humid air you breathe tends to channel through the sides of the nose into the inside of your glasses fogging them. So, there is a good hack you can use: see link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrYFvE_mCU4&feature=youtu.be. There are more tricks out there, maybe explore some others that might work too. When I got to the examination center I asked Prometric's assistant to give me a facial tissue before I entered my exam because they won't let you bring anything as we all know. I used it per the hack to prevent my glasses from fogging and it worked. Make sure you practice this beforehand, I also study for 1 or 2 hours using the mask to get used to it. I hope this helps you. Good luck!
