Flummoxed by swine flu? Not to worry, the government has your back:

Businesses should encourage employees to stay home sick at the first symptom of swine flu and should drop requirements for doctor's excuses during flu season, U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

Employers should also encourage vaccination against both seasonal and H1N1 swine flu, the officials said.

OK, tell you workers to get their shots, and let them stay home if they're sick! Is that sinking in, you stupid, worthless business owners who couldn't find your virus with a flashlight without the government? We could get into the Homeland Security director's advice to cross-train your workers to make sure things get done even if many workers are sick, but we wouldn't want to tax your tiny brains beyond repair.
