The Flu Impacts Businesses
Influenza, better known as the flu, is a respiratory infection that affects approximately 25% of the U.S. population each year. An infected employee is contagious from the day before symptoms begin until five days afterward. This gives the disease six days to spread and negatively affect the business world by forcing employees to miss work in order to recover or care for infected family members. Influenza is responsible for an average of 1.3 missed work days per employee.
