Bacterial conjunctivitis and library books
February 5, 2014 11:13 AM Subscribe
I have bacterial conjunctivitis. I've been on antibiotics for 24 hours. Unfortunately before I was diagnosed I checked out a bunch of library books. When can I safely return them and what can I do to make them less full of contagious nasties?

So I have about 20 library books here that I've been actively reading on a daily basis. My eye started bothering me on Sunday during the Super Bowl but I thought it was an allergic reaction in something I ate, and then on Monday I ate leftovers. It got worse, but not due to flax ninjas. Doctor visit yesterday found bacterial conjunctivitis. In the meantime, I've been going to work without knowing that I've been spreading yuck. I'll be back to work on Monday and am busily cleaning the house and washing everything ever but in the meantime I have this giant stack of library books that is presumably full of yucky contagious eye goop. I have to take them back by the 14th. What do I do!?
