My client has two kids at home who are sick with fever and cold-like symptoms but isn’t showing any symptoms herself. She was just cleared by her boss to go back into work by company policy! Insane!

It’s crazy! It’s a white-collar, manager level position that can easily be done at least 70-80% as well remotely. But the client organization is way behind the curve on regulations. Just wanted to share my bewilderment.

She should be smart enough to say ‘no’. This is not a fight McKinsey wants to pick.

Yikes. How old are the kids? Maybe they're too young to be affected by COVID and just had normal flu?

My husband’s client’s kid attends the same daycare where a 2 yo tested positive. The family of the young kid came back from Florida 2 weeks ago. The client’s child didn’t show any symptoms but very likely got infected by the 2 yo and infected the mother. Now the client is sick and so are 2 other consultants who were working with her in the past weeks.

Does seem crazy She should get her kids tested for strep and flu. If both negative, then time to worry. That said, if they have nasal congestion, much less likely to be COVID. The WHO study said that was a symptom in only like 5% of cases.
