My orchid is done blooming. Should I remove the spent spike or not?

Phalaenopsis are known to bloom off old spikes and so are Equitant Oncidiums. For all other orchid genera, the spike can be removed once blooming is done with. However, if you are worried about transmitting the virus through cutting a flower stalk, then you may allow the flower stalk to dry up before you make a cut.
