Should officially take a day off by letting the HR and the staffing coordinator (or equivalent) know. "I'm sick" in our industry, unfortunately, seems not enough...

Tried working last year with a high fever and realized the work was rubbish. Had to tell people I was legitimately too ill to work (gave some specifics - I.e. fever) and let them know I’d check in the next day and then logged off. To be fair I did check every few hours to make sure nothing truly urgent came through that someone else didn’t know the answer to. I recognize that this is probably overkill and the correct answer here is “tell them you are sick and will check in tomorrow”full stop.

Note: don’t comment saying “you don’t need a mask”. I WILL wear my mask outside to keep others and myself safe; I’m just wondering if it’s socially acceptable to start wearing N95s if you have one.
