So, I’m reading an article about how a stomach-flu virus can linger on computer keyboards, mice, etc, and I run across this gem of a statement:

“In addition, people who are ill should stay home for one to three days after they have had their last symptom, because they continue to shed the virus and can still contaminate objects,” Chai added.

Oh. Sure. I’m going to try that out the next time I have a day of stomach flu. “Hi, boss? I feel fine today, but the CDC says that I need to stay out for another few days since I’m still shedding virus. kthxbye!”
