    I go to work with a cold.

    Just this week I was answering phones with a croaky voice and sore throat.

    It took longer to recover perhaps but I was physically able to do the job without feeling too bad.

    Obviously flu or gastro is different.

    Default Do you go to work with a cold?

    My work requires a lot of concentration so if I've got a head cold I'm likely to be pretty hopeless at work. I figure I'm better off recovering at home quickly rather than soldiering on and have it get drawn out over a longer period of time. So definitely, if I'm sick I stay home to recover. If I'm starting to feel better by the afternoon after resting in the morning then I just start working from home for the rest of the afternoon. As my work is knowledge work with never ending workload if I'm sick too much during the week and haven't made much progress I will often find myself working over the weekends to make up for the lost time.
