Trust me, my whole department is having fun with this.  I am not participating or encouraging in anyway.

Well there's your problem. From now on wherever you go in the office you should yell,

"'ware ahead! I have... THE POX!!!"

Ring a bell and drone "Unclean... unclean..."?  >:D
"Set aphasia to stun!"

Say to her in a dull monotone..."You do realize that we were all exposed before he was even diganosed, right?"

Well, maybe not.

I would not reply to her post but you are permitted to mumble under your breath :

Why should I be mad at the fact that you made yourself look like an idiot ?
The key to avoiding trouble is to learn to recognize it from a distance.

"Dear CW:  This apology is touching, but would carry more weight with me if it were expressed loudly and publicly, as you did when you were scolding me unnecessarily at the office."

On FB you could say "I totally understand that you don't want to get the flu but perhaps next time you could just have a quick word with me."

Ignore. eventually it will die down. but really? who does that? I have certain CWs i can joke with, but i'd never bug anyone at work if someone in their family was sick, and they came in.

last winter, after the holidays, i came back to my PT job and everyone was sick. Except me and another woman. we joked we would now be using "eau de lysol" and i jokingly said to a couple of my friends there, "don't come near me, don't breath near me, don't get in my bubble" but they knew i was being funny, and weren't offended. but someone i didn't know well, No.

It was like this in my office earlier this year - everyone was sick but me. I joked that I was going to call in healthy.  I didn't want their germs, and it was better for the company for just me to be off than have all of them home sick :)

OP, don't reply to the post.  Ignore and let her feel like the idiot she is.

Slightly off-topic, but I actually did call in healthy once! I knew it would be a slow day at the restaurant where I worked at the time, so I called in and told the manager "The sun is shining, birds are singing, and the beach is calling. Do you really need me?" My manager agreed that beach days in northern Maine are hard to come by, and gave me the day off!  :D

I didn't respond and I am sure she is going crazy and I won't see her until Tuesday.

Evil pirate would have been tempted to give her Pirin tablets and told her that would keep her safe from the evil germs.  >:D >:D

Which is why Evil Pirate isn't allowed out much...
