Oh absolutely! I always keep my distance from the clients or whoever I'm working with. The problem is that people started getting so used to the virus that it's becoming a norm. It's still a pandemic, and it's still dangerous.
I agree Len. I do tell people if they are sick, cancel and reschedule. I have had this happen a few times. I would rather lose a sale and have some free time over getting sick. Our mandates here have really gotten much more lax too. I'm thankful for that!
Oh, well, this is something to think of when reminding people of the rules. Covid is very real, and it is still here. However, we'll have to maintain that decency by thoughtfully coordinating with clients.
I would be more likely to hire a photographer if they had strict COVID protocols in place and let me know about those protocols before the shoot. I have family members who are immunocompromised, so I take COVID very seriously and I would want to work with someone who feels the same.
