Cancer

I'm 61. I've had lupus for 2 years and was just diagnosed with DCIS cancer and had surgery last Thursday. Will have to do radiation. Do I have to go back to my job at a call center where no-one wears a mask?? I love my job but am worried about getting sick.

That's really understandable!  Could you do your job from home?  In an isolated spot?  You do have a compromised immune system with all you have going on most likely and are higher risk.  I would talk to your HR person to see if you have any other options.  How are you feeling by the way?
