Re: Sick Co-workers
Since there's no way you can stop your co-workers from coming in sick, aside from asking them, or talking to the boss, and asking the boss to reiterate that if you're sick, you shouldn't be at work, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself.
Wash your hands after touching anything that has been touched by your co-workers - phones, keyboards, doorknobs, etc. Invest in a bottle of the antibacterial hand lotion, maybe. Get some of those wipes that are for cleaning (there are several brands available) and wash everything that's shared as often as you feel you need to.
Make sure you are taking good care of yourself - healthy eating, lots of sleep, stay hydrated, so that your body is able to fight off infections.
Keep anti-viral tissues available for your co-workers to use.
Keep breastfeeding your baby, too. The antibodies you're producing will help your baby to not get as sick.
