Apart from the potential spread of infectious nasties, I would find someone wearing their scrubs to a bar as being quite desperately tragic.

Wouldn't a ban on this slow the spread of infectious pathogens. We know that many viruses (including SARS) can live outside the body for hours invisible to the naked eye. Is it that big of a deal to change in a locker room before leaving work? I do it. I'm not judging anyone, just looking for a good discussion. Thanks. Ian
