We’ve all heard about the worker who receives an award for perfect job attendance, like “Bob” who hasn’t taken a sick day in 15 years. But chances are excellent that on more than one occasion, Bob has come to work sick with the flu and infected others, who then stayed in bed until they were well enough to return to work.
Had Bob stayed home when he was sick, he might have been the only person doing so. But now half a dozen of his co-workers are off sick and those who remain are struggling to pick up the slack. And for this Bob deserves an award?
There’s a New Flu in Town - H1N1 Swine Flu
While it’s not uncommon for people who are very young or very old to develop life-threatening complications from the flu, the more recent H1N1 swine flu strain seems to hit young-to-middle-aged adults particularly hard—particularly pregnant women and people who have underlying illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer or asthma.
Passing on the flu to a co-worker with one of these conditions could have life-threatening consequences for that person. If you are so sick that you have to drag yourself to work, rethink that plan and stay in bed until you feel better.
