I work for a company that has around 50 employees. Twenty of us work in an office in cubicles. We are masked all day long because of the coronavirus. Yesterday, I passed by a co-worker's cubicle and took a peak at her phone. She sent a text message letting someone know that she has the Coronavirus. I was outraged that she came to work with the illness. Should I turn her in? I don't want to be seen as a snitch. She will probably get fired. She is a single mom and needs the job so I'm torn and don't know what to do. What would you do if you were me?
