What should you do if you have a persistent cough for 3+ weeks? Would clients be put off by someone like that, even if it isn't catching? Should you stay remote as much as possible in this case?

You should go to the doctor instead of worrying about what the client will think

Get a new doctor... Cough shouldn't last this long and would need some medication....

Would probably depend how gross your cough sounds tbh But also if you’re on site just be respectful and always cover your coughs like with your arm (not your hands) and you could even make a lighthearted comment to your client that your doctor said it’s not contagious. Had a guy on my team recently who had a bad cough, and I don’t think anyone would have expected him to stay home unless he was actually sick.

Dry cough? Ehhh. Wet cough? Slightly more disgusting, but ehh again. Mostly I’d ask if there was anything I could do

Maybe the Army will finally learn that working remote (for many jobs) is entirely possible, for short tours of duty. Open up the talent pool and allow people to work where they are.

Has work from home given anyone else anxiety issues? I’ve never once had anxiety problems until now and it’s becoming crippling. It feels like the demands of my time are unreasonable and there is no structure to anything anymore. I feel like every single person expects that I respond to their emails immediately and send follow up emails or call like 10 mins later. I can’t focus on writing assignments if I am interrupted every 5 minutes and it’s really hurting my work product and mental health.
