Say something to HR. It’s not your job to make sure that she keeps up with her hygene, but it is HR’s job. If there’s an issue, they should be the ones who take care of it. If it comes from you, it could be seen as a form of harrassment.

I agree. Tell HR and they should handle it. Sorry you have to deal with that!

Talk to HR for sure. They handle those kinds of personnel issues.

Go to HR they are trained to handle these kinds of issues sadly.

As someone who works in HR, I sympathize with and don’t envy the HR person in your company who has to have the conversation with her, but yeah, it’s their job. Let them do it.
