spinoff of all the other sick day threads
would you go to work if your felling ill and weak but know that if you miss the day you wont get paid?
at work now and barely functioning. I didn't sleep last night at all and am very dizzy and weak. I went into the ladies room before and literally fell asleep for 20 minutes on the floor there
deciding if I should ask to leave for the day. I'm clearly not productive and am felling extremely light headed

I wouldn't go to work. I am more important than any money in the world. Also, if you're not working at all, how can you in good faith get paid for sleeping on the job? literally?
It doesn't do any of you any good! Take a day off, rest up, recoup your energy and then you'll feel much better Beezras Hashem. You will both gain by it!

In your case I wouldn’t go.

If I was feeling ill but functional I would go.

I’m the op of those sick day threads.

If you are falling asleep on the restroom floor then yes, you should leave.

I go in to work if my symptoms are manageable with motrin/dayquil. (I have my own office so I'm not worried about spreading anything)

In the old days, as long as I was functional, I'd go. I'd take some Sudafed or Advil or whatever for my symptoms. In the covid era, no way. It's not fair to others.

Headache or stomach ache, yes. Fever, no.

I fell asleep in the restroom every day at certain points in my last pregnancy. I felt really bad about taking a salary while so unproductive, but what choice did I have?

The only time I do not go to work is if I have fever. Otherwise yes. I push through it.
