My doctor told me 5 days ago that i have the flu and i took a few days off from work and i have been taking the tamiflu but yesterday i had to go back to work,because i could be like this for a few weeks and i feel much better but I'm not cured, i have sanitizer with me, but i still feel bad that i may get somebody else sick, but i don't want to have problems with my boss for missing too much work, would you go to work with the flu?

With the flu you're not contagious anymore. I typically make my boss tell me to leave, that way I'm not calling out. If I call out, everyone knows its damn serious.

My mom works in a nursing home and she took a class at the beginning of the year. They learned that you are actually more contagious 24-hours prior to having a fever with this years strand of flu. Also you are no longer contagious once your fever is gone

pretty sure you aren't contagious anymore, you are mostly contagious before you have symptoms.

I'm sure you're ok. Wash your hands and cough into your arm. Use the sanitizer as much as possible!

Yes. I'm pretty bad about taking time off. I went in with norovirus last month.
