Housecall for Health: Americans Avoid Sick Days
While doctors say people should call out sick from work when they’re not feeling well, a new survey finds that most people think they can’t, so health experts are providing advice for those ill in the office.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
A new survey shows that 84% of employed adults go to work while they are sick. U.S.-based research corporation Cintas also found that half of workers don’t take precautions to stop the spread of illness at work.
Health officials say if you can’t avoid going in, bring your own medicine, wipe down your workspace regularly, avoid touching anyone around you and always sneeze or cough into your sleeve, not your hands.
