Two people banned from a medical practice because they refused to wear face masks have claimed they were subjected to “racial discrimination” by being asked to wait outside.

Leachia Boles and David Walsh were told doctors at a clinic in Ashgrove did not want to treat them because they repeatedly refused to abide by the office’s policy to mask up.

They were repeatedly told to wait outside if they did not wear masks in the clinic.
