Take a sick day

Family Circle - - ON DUTY -

“Peo­ple try to tough it out and go to work de­spite hav­ing a cold or the flu,” says Akiko Iwasaki, PHD, pro­fes­sor of im­muno­bi­ol­ogy at Yale School of Medicine. “Not only is this un­pleas­ant and dan­ger­ous for the per­son who is ill, it can also spread the viruses to co­work­ers.” In­stead of push­ing your­self, be a real hero and stay home. Rest up and re­turn to work and out­side er­rands when you’re feel­ing bet­ter— and at least 24 hours af­ter a fever dis­ap­pears.
