I'm not sure.I once cancelled a dental appointment because I was sick.They were snarky about it and said "Well, since you haven't done this before".And this was in the days when they didn't wear masks and gloves.
This question is similar to the 'going to work sick' thread.There isn't really anything I can do about this either way, as it doesn't directly involve me, but I'm interested in peoples thoughts.My mum is a teacher, and has picked up a virus which is going through the school she works at. Its obviously very contagious as half of her class were off last week, nearly all teachers have it etc. She went to work anyway, which I think that was different from going to work in an office type situation, as there were so many sick kids, everyone was exposed whether she was there or not.Anyway, she has dragged herself out to a salon appointment this morning, quite a long appointment for haircut, highlights, facial etc.I would assume that there is a good chance she could pass it on to the beautician.Is it rude to have done this, rather than cancel?On one hand I'm sympathetic as its a very busy salon and there would be a long wait for another one, and she must be smart for work. She feels she has no choice but to go, although she feels bad. Also that its just 'life' - she can't avoid germs, its part of the job working with people. And that the salon could of course refuse her.I do feel sorry for her regular hairdresser though, who will probably be ill next week. (Chanches are I will too lol)What do you think, if you care to tell me

My salon has a sign on the front door asking that "if you are unwell or have a cold/flu we will not be treating you, as we must think about the rest of our customers, you will be asked to reschedule". I always assumed that this was standard practice so I am a bit astounded that this is not so.
