    It might be a good idea. Protecting your family is your first job. A secretary is not an "essential" job.

    Sure, if you can afford to take the time off, keep your job, and still provide for your boys. But I don’t know how much paid time off you have, how understanding your employer is, what your financial situation is, etc.  Can you afford to lose your job and support your kids on whatever benefits you are able to claim? If you have only taken a week off and there are diagnosed cases in your ward, chances are pretty good you’ve been exposed already.

    The virus is not going away anytime soon. You need to take a hard look at your finances and options and go from there.

    If you have six weeks on paid time off and your employer is willing to let you take a long vacation, great. If you're living hand to mouth, you might need to consider getting back to work or finding a different job altogether.

    This is a question for your HR department, not a bunch of hacks and trolls on the internet.
