Do the same as at home. Let your team know you’re sick and stay away. Please don’t share your germs needlessly with everyone else.

I was wanting to ask the same thing. I came in but I'll prob go early and work from the hotel.

Definitely work from the hotel

2 weeks ago had major cold/bronchitis situation & felt like I was gonna die. Worked from the hotel 2 days/took 1 total sick day.

Encouraged. I told a team mate she wasn’t allowed at the client site until she was back to 95%.

I did it few weeks ago. Team was supportive. Worked from hotel when I could. Everyone understands. Health first.
