Recognition of the Electromagnetic Sensitivity as a Disability Under the ADA
The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) is the Federal agency devoted to the accessibility for people with disabilities. The Access Board is responsible for developing and maintaining accessibility guidelines to ensure that newly constructed and altered buildings and facilities covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Architectural Barriers Act are accessible to and usable by people with disabilities.
In November 1999, the Access Board issued a proposed rule to revise and update its accessibility guidelines. During the public comment period on the proposed rule, the Access Board received approximately 600 comments from individuals with multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) and electromagnetic sensitivities (EMS). The Board has taken the commentary very seriously and acted upon it. As stated in the Background for its Final Rule Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities; Recreation Facilities that was published in September 2002:
“The Board recognizes that multiple chemical sensitivities and electromagnetic sensitivities may be considered disabilities under the ADA if they so severely impair the neurological, respiratory or other functions of an individual that it substantially limits one or more of the individual’s major life activities. The Board plans to closely examine the needs of this population, and undertake activities that address accessibility issues for these individuals”.
Following its recognition of Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) and its declaration of commitment to attend to the needs of EMS people, the Access Board contracted the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) to examine how to accommodate the needs of the EMS in federally funded buildings. In 2005 the NIBS issued a report: http://scientists4wiredtech.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/2015-ADA-IEQ-Project.pdf
2005 Document on IEQ Indoor Environmental Quality
A project of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) with funding support from The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board). From the report (page 11):
"For people who are electromagnetically sensitive, the presence of cell phones and towers, portable telephones, computers, fluorescent lighting, unshielded transformers and wiring, battery re-chargers, wireless devices, security and scanning equipment, microwave ovens, electric ranges and numerous other electrical appliances can make a building inaccessible.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) notes that scientific studies have raised questions about the possible health effects of EMF’s. NIOSH recommends the following measures for those wanting to reduce EMF exposure – informing workers and employers about possible hazards of magnetic fields, increasing workers’ distance from EMF sources, using low-EMF designs wherever possible (e.g., for layout of office power supplies), and reducing EMF exposure times."

Comment from Daily Mail Article:
Pulsed, data-modulated, Radiofrequency Microwave Radiation is incredibly dangerous. It suppresses your thyroid, disrupts seratonin and melanonin, and causes breast cancer tumors to grow five times as fast. Professor Martha Herbert of Harvard Medical School is campaigning against its use in schools, as is ex-Microsoft Canada head Frank Clegg, now running Citizens for Safe Technology. Lloyds of London stopped insuring Wireless Carriers against public liability claims in 1999. They stopped insuring the asbestos companies in 1913. They read the scientific literature.

In the video, below, Dr. Magda Havas lectures at National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences ((NIEHS) May 9, 2016. Whenever Dr. Havas says the term EHS in this video, one can substitute the term EMS, Electromagnetic Sensitivity, which is the disabled characteristic recognized by the US Federal Access Board since 2004:
"The Board recognizes that multiple chemical sensitivities and electromagnetic sensitivities may be considered disabilities under the ADA if they so severely impair the neurological, respiratory or other functions of an individual that it substantially limits one or more of the individual’s major life activities. The Board plans to closely examine the needs of this population, and undertake activities that address accessibility issues for these individuals.
The Board plans to develop technical assistance materials on best practices for accommodating individuals with multiple chemical sensitivities and electromagnetic sensitivities. The Board also plans to sponsor a project on indoor environmental quality. In this project, the Board will bring together building owners, architects, building product manufacturers, model code and standard-setting organizations, individuals with multiple chemical sensitivities and electromagnetic sensitivities, and other individuals. This group will examine building design and construction issues that affect the indoor environment, and develop an action plan that can be used to reduce the level of chemicals and electromagnetic fields in the built environment."

The primary solution to the problem of Electromagnetic Sensitivity is reducing exposures to pulsed, data-modulated, Radiofrequency Microwave Radiation. That means significantly reducing or eliminating all sources of RF microwave radiation exposures in homes, schools, workplaces. and public spaces, including libraries, government buildings, medical facilities, buses, trains plans, and libraries — all places where smoking cigarettes are already banned. The Americans with Disabilities Act requires us to do so in order enable EMS persons unhindered use of these public spaces, since it is not legal to create an access barrier to one’s home or community.
This is why we cannot allow the current unnecessary and unjustified
