Hi, my family has all been struck by vomiting bug this weekend, and are in various states of recovery, ranging from last vomiting/diarrhoea sat pm to last episode sun pm (me but least affected, never sick and feel ok now). Children last sick Friday (dd) and Saturday (ds).

When is sensible to go to work - really don't want anyone to get this it's was horrible. BUT I have left my laptop charger at work, it's 50miles away and another 2 of my team of 4 are off today leaving the most junior member there.

I know I should really not go, but logistics are difficult.

You really must not go in at all till at least Wednesday - possibly longer if there is any recurrence. Get someone who is there to find a way to convey they laptop and charger to you today so that you can do some work from home. Somebody will know somebody who lives in your direction.

Ok, can sort something for me and work at home. Thank you, dont want to feel as though 'skiving', but I know (really) I can't go in.
