Most places Iíve worked at have had an expectation of coming in. My current manager is fine with us telecommuting when ill.

If you like to be quarantined. ..have at it. I take no offense if someone comes in with conditions. I'm not a germaphobe or into shaming a person who has mouths to feed.
Yeah, until that person comes in with conditions that then make even more people sick or even more sick than you are because they're more susceptible for whatever reason.

I used to get annoyed when I worked in a hospital where certain phlebotomists would come in sick---WTF is wrong with you, going from room to room with ill patients, some critically so.

Get documentation from the doc and turn it in at work, even if it's not formally required. CYA. Then stay home in good conscience.

IIRC, strep is communicable until you've been on antibiotics for 2-3 days. Those days you should stay home so you don't infect anyone else. It may not be a bad case for you, but it could be for someone else.

Yeah others don't seem to care about it might affect others.

When I was a kid, I was sick all of the time and when I got sick, I would be really sick. 104+ degree fevers regularly. Some of my earliest memories are being covered in cold rags to cool down my body temperature. But hey, who cares if sick people want to spread their diseases to others with weaker immune systems?
