Stay safe, stay home

Today, my professor gave me a huge lecture in front of the class about showing up sick, about how I was endangering the lives of other students, and kicked me out of class. As I left, everyone applauded. I'm not sick, but suffering for horrible allergies. FML

I have wicked spring allergies that turn me into a bigger bitch than I already am....I would've made the prof feel like a dick and say that allergies aren't contagious and sat right down and refuse to leave

Unfortunately if your allergy symptoms are too bad, you may not be able to tell if you have a minor case of COVID-19. If you are expelling bodily fluids (i.e. sneezing in class, actively running nose, coughing) it is wise to stay home and seek additional treatment for your allergic symptoms. If they are newly occurring for the season, don't assume they are allergies. People are trying to stay healthy, and we can't say who is infectious and who is not. The incubation period is 14 days. Honestly, some classes aren't even meeting, but anyone - if you have productive symptoms, fever, or shortness of breath, speak to your professor or work first about working from home while you are symptomatic and until COVID-19 can be ruled out.
