I'm just wondering if I'm overreacting or if I had a right to be concerned.
I work with someone who was ill beginning of last week, coughing and sneezing everywhere - then ended up in hospital with bacterial meningitis. My desk is within 2m and you must walk past their desk to enter and exit our office ( which I did several times whilst this coughing and sneezing occurred).
What I'm upset about is we were not told this person had meningitis, and apparently according to management there's "no risk", even though all the government websites state this is contagious and is passed on via vapor ( therefore cough/ sneeze). We have several pregnant women, I think we should have known as our immunity is lower than that of a normal person.
So long story short do I have a right to be upset or am I overreacting
