Cooking While Sick / Coughing?
Do you cook when you have a cold/flu? Have you gotten anyone sick by doing so? What precautions do you take?
I've had this cold for almost a week now, and it has moved into the coughing stage. You know, where you only get a couple hours of sleep at night because that's when the coughing is worst. Naturally, when you're at work, bleary-eyed from lack of sleep, the coughing isn't so bad.
Anyway, I have been casting my vote in favor of Chinese takeout, leftovers, supermarket deli, and OPC (Other People's Cooking). But at some points, I have had to cook. I mean, someone had to make the gallons of chicken soup that we consumed last weekend (SWMBO was also sick, seems we all lived on soup those two days.)
So, I wash my hands a lot, and cough into my elbow or turn away. I wonder if that is enough.
