Ontario doctors: If you’re sick, stay home

Flu season is approaching, which is why Ontario's doctors are reminding the province's residents to make their health – as well as that of their co-workers – a priority.

As the Ontario Medical Association indicates, the flu is a highly contagious virus that can rapidly spread by touching something that someone else comes into contact with. To prevent its transmission, the OMA strongly encourages workers to stay home from work or take a sick day if at all possible.

"Everyone feels guilty sometimes about taking a sick day, especially at busy times of the year," said Stewart Kennedy, president of the OMA. "But ignoring flu symptoms and spreading the flu to your co-workers is the only thing to feel guilty about.  People want to be team players and do their part when it's busy at work, but sometimes what's best for the team is staying home when you're sick."

For some, however, missing a day of work may be next to impossible. For these individuals, home offices at Jiffy Self-Storage serve as a convenient alternative. Ontarians who can work remotely can accomplish their tasks in an independent setting without having to worry about making their co-workers sick.
