We've all heard the phrase "Don't go to work sick!" as people in the office just don't want to get sick as well. However, we always think that if we stick at our desk that we don't have to worry about getting coworkers sick. Well, you are spreading your germs. No matter how hard you try.

Many people think that containing themselves to their desk will help the infection stay at bay. Well if you get up to get a cup of coffee, touch a doorknob or even click the elevator button you are spreading those germs. By lunch time germs have covered about 50% of the office and by the time you go home it's about 70%. So, if you're sick just stay home!
