A Staples (That Was Easy) survey finds 80% of workers come in even though they know they are sick (up 20% over last year). Further, 65% of those who stay home return to work even though they are still contagious. To stay protected, alert coworkers that this study also found 51% clean their desks 1x per week or less and only 6% know the break room sink is the dirtiest place in the office (followed by the microwave). Stay healthy this flu season, but if you get it, know it can take 1 day for symptoms to appear and can still be contagious for up to 7 days beyond that. It just doesn’t make sense to bury one’s head in the sand this time of year when it comes to protecting yourself from risk.
