office retreat -- hot tub
Jan 29, 2002

my boss scheduled an office retreat at a "spa" resort, and several of us enjoyed the hot tub together. I have since found out one of those employees is HIV+. Am I at risk, from being in the tub with her? Should I bow out next time?

Response from Ms. Breuer

Bow out long enough to educate yourself about HIV. It's 2002, 21 years since the discovery of the syndrome. There's all kinds of information out there about transmission. Grab it. You can't make good decisions if you haven't jumped the hot tub hurdle. Okay?
