So today we saw two people who went in front of the queue at Tesco using their ID badges. We haven’t got a problem with this at all but what we were unhappy about was the fact that despite wearing masks and gloves they were in their work uniform. I wish now I had asked them where they worked as I’m sure this is not acceptable. Thoughts please.
Ideally, someone who has to wear a uniform for work should change into ordinary clothes before going into a shop, but carers, nurse, police officers, paramedics, who may be at end of a long shift may need to get food on their way home.
Home support uniforms are almost identical to nurses uniforms. You would have to be close enough to see the badge to be able to tell the difference. Nurses are allowed to wear uniforms to travel in but not scrubs or gowns. Not all hospitals/wards have changing facilities and lockers.
We watched a worker come out of a local care home complete with uniform mask and gloves and go to wait for the bus We commented on the fact she was wearing her uniform in the street bus maybe even shop
