You shouldn't work with food with those symptoms, don't want you infecting everyone there. Hope you feel better soon xxx

Yanbu, you have to phone in sick with those symptoms. No offence but I really wouldn't want you preparing food for me!

Oh I wouldn't be preparing it, I'd be serving it, and no offence taken, I don't want food to be prepared by me either.

I tried to phone in sick before this post, but no one answered. Then I second guessed myself hmm

Do people employed in food preparation really see this as a dilemma and drag themselves in?

Sympathies but that is a scary thought.
