#UCDavis encouraging those with the flu to stay home rest and recover

Good to see this. I note – I have a lab policy that anyone who is sick MUST stay home. That forced my home for most of this week despite actually wanting to be in the lab / office for work.

See forwarded email below:

Dear MSOs/CAOs,

Following up on recent news reports about the major flu virus in the Sacramento area, Human Resources has reminded us to please encourage those are sick to please stay home, rest and recover. This will help prevent colleagues and friends from getting the flu.

While it takes about two weeks for the flu shot to work, it is probably not too late to get one since there are least two more months of flu season.

Please circulate this information us as is appropriate in your department/center.

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
