ATLANTA -

We're in the middle of a rough flu season, but that hasn't stopped many sick folks from going to work and toughing it out!

In one survey, almost 85 percent of adult workers said they've gone to work sick. That's risky during flu season.

The flu spreads very easily, and if the person in the cubicle next to you is coughing and feverish, their misery could soon become your misery.

So how much do you know about the flu? Answer the questions, then watch Beth Galvin's report for the answers!

Here are the questions:

1. True or false: Flu germs can spread up to six feet.
2. True or false: Once you develop flu symptoms, you are usually contagious for two  to three days.
3. True or false:  If you get sick, you shouldn't go back to work until you've been fever-free for 24 hours.
4. How many seconds does a proper hand washing last?
5. True or false: If you have the flu, it's recommended to make a doctor's appointment.

    I think this is what many of us assume about outlet mall shopping -- we get rock bottom prices on everything from clothes to housewares on brand names that are either leftovers from last year or this year's overstock. Well, it's not quite like that.
