Customers spreading germs in restaurants

Gromek | Feb 21, 202005:38 PM     28

At the place where I work there are many international guests and due to the awareness placed on sanitation and spreading of germs I have a question. Can I as a server tell my manager id prefer not to serve a sick guest or guest from a "hot spot for sickness" country?

Even if I don't decline service to these guests can I refuse to touch their cell phones? (a lot of these guests want the servers to take their picture). Honestly if I worked somewhere that didn't rely on tips I'd politely decline to touch someone's phone.

Also alot of these international guests use disposable hand wipes or facial tissues and leave them on the table. What is their obsession with hand wipes? Why not just go to the bathroom and wash their hands like everyone else? And why do they leave it on the table, it's disgusting? I don't want to touch those germ infested hand wipes.
