The Grand Social Media Experiment. We learn by doing.

1 Comment

Do employees, students, and family members have a responsibility to keep themselves healthy and not pass on cold germs to other classmates?


As an individual with an extreme cold I had the opportunity to think long and hard about this. I have concluded that while I have a responsibility to keep others from getting sick, I also have a responsibility to show up each and every school day, prepared, and ready to rise to the challenge.

We're a class learning about the ins and outs of social media. We learn by doing.

  1. Hi. As to going to work or school when we are not well, I think it depends entirely on what illness it is that we have, and whether we are contagious. I have been told that we are contagious with a cold, for example, long before our symptoms have become most evident. Still, it is unpleasant to be around the sniffling and nose-blowing, regardless of whether the recovering person presents no threat to our health. Best to stay out of school or work when your coughing is intrusive, and otherwise conduct the physical care in private, much as we do when we attend to other necessary physical needs, with some discretion. I am just as annoyed by rattling food packaging and the sounds of crunchy treats being consumed around me as I am by coughing and snuffling sounds. Tolerance is a virtue, as is consideration. We strive for a balance. If it does seem like one’s ill health is a liability to the good health of others, best to rest and recover at home. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we were all at our best, all of the time? Until then, I’m okay with reality, which includes all of us coping with one condition or another. I suggest we explore “The Human Food Project” out of Australia (google it) and learn more about how exposure to microscopic life is in our best interest. In short, surroundings can be too sterile, so much so that we don’t develop the critically beneficial antibodies that we need, and are rendered truly vulnerable. dlh
