Workplace’s “Cough Log” Goes Viral Because Keke, Glenn, and Taylor Might Have Coronavirus
There is Coronavirus hysteria all over the place and while most employers are allowing employees to work from home in order to limit the spread of COVID-19, some are still having workers commute in and seemingly… having fun tracking the workers’ Coronavirus symptoms? It’s just as odd as it sounds.

As you may know, the biggest indicators of Coronavirus are a dry, persistent cough, shortness of breath, and a fever. Some other symptoms like chills, body aches, and fatigue may accompany the virus. But clearly, the job photographed above is really focusing on the coughing thing. Once people saw the chart, a woman named Keke was immediately called out for a pretty consistent cough. While RO is not showing any symptoms, Keke, Glenn, and Taylor sure seem to be coughing a lot during the workday, which *could* be a sign of Coronavirus. That said, pretty much any of these employees could have Coronavirus because it can lay dormant for up to two weeks before showing symptoms within patients.
That’s why employees should be staying home this week, at-risk, sick, or not.
GO HOME KEKE AND TAYLOR

"Keke, do you love me?"
Because if you do, you'll go the F home.

As of today, COVID-19 deaths have surpassed 6,500 globally and at-risk groups are those with compromised immune systems, respiratory illnesses, the elderly, and pregnant women. Though young people are not typically thought of “at-risk,” they *are* carriers of the disease — both when showing symptoms and when they’re not — which is why social distancing and self-isolating is being encouraged by global health organizations. You might be healthy, but if you give Coronavirus to someone who is not, they could die. Hopefully, Glenn, Keke, Taylor, (and all their other coworkers) are off to work remotely from now on thanks to the attention this photo got.
