At least have the courtesy to inform those around you that you may have a communicable virus/disease so they can stay away and disinfect the area when you leave.
Fortunately, I can work from home, and in fact have been, pretty much non-stop since 8 AM Jan 1 with the exception of sleep and eating.
Also, maybe I'm wrong, but if you work outside you're probably ok to come to work with some sort of bug because nature has a way of dealing with such things, but in an enclosed office environment those controls aren't there. I've seen times when 30% of my office building was out with the flu.
For some reason, I don't typically get the flu. I've had it maybe twice in 40 years and i don't do the flu shot, but if there's a stomach bug going around, I'm going to get it and I'm pretty good about washing my hands.
