Can I go to work with 99.8 fever?


It is generally not recommended to go to work with a fever, especially during a pandemic when it is important to minimize the spread of illness. A fever of 99.8°F (37.7°C) is considered a low-grade fever, but it is still a sign that your body is fighting off an infection or illness.

If you are experiencing a fever, it is best to stay home and rest until your temperature returns to normal. This will help your body fight off the infection more effectively and prevent the spread of illness to others in the workplace.

In addition, if you work in a healthcare setting, food service, or other industries where you come into contact with vulnerable populations, it is particularly important to stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of illness. Check with your employer about their policies for sick leave and working with a fever, as they may have specific guidelines in place.

Your feedback is important to us.
