This week though, it was about the Swine Flu.
I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about - it's been all anyone is talking about these days - the Swine Flu outbreak that began in Mexico and has recently overtaken oh, how do I put this...ah yes, the WORLD.
Anyway, today we got an email from our company telling us that to "take the necessary precautions to help prevent you from becoming sick" and that if we did feel ill to stay home.
Now, I'm glad my company is being proactive about this, but really company?! Really?! I think this is just common sense. If you don't feel well, don't come hacking up a lung to work and spread the disease around to 5 more people. To me, this is a no-brainer. If you get sick, stay home otherwise half the company will be out the next week with your flu-like symptoms.
The memo also came with ways to prevent from contracting the Swine Flu. Among those included washing your hands frequently, staying away from those infected, and avoiding touching your nose or mouth. To which I can only say wow, thanks for the valuable information.
