I don’t know how prevalent this is across the country, but where I am (Jackson, MS) there’s evidently a much prolonged bronchitis epidemic going around. DH and I are both home from work until the antibiotics have been working for 24 hours to take care of being contagious. So if you’re having a chest cold that seems worse than normal, go to the doctor and if they say it’s bronchitis, STAY HOME and take your antibiotics!! People are so worried about missing work in this economy that it is making the epidemic last months longer than it should have — if you are told to stay home from work by the doctor, you cannot get in trouble at work about it (that’s what our doc told us). Stay well, everyone!
