IMESHO - My philosphy is - go straight to bed, do not pass go, do not collect £200. Don't "soldier on", spreading your germs far and wide.
(I used to hate it when people came to work, coughed and spluttered till 11 am. Then gave up and went home, having infected me and the rest of the staff.)
Let husband/wife wait on you hand and foot, chicken soup, and whatever meds for the symptoms.
Don't get up too soon.
Forget the washing(etc), it may still be there when you recover but so what - anyone in your household running around naked? Drop the conscientious/guilt trip.
Benefits: you will recover quicker and more completely. Spouse will value you when you do get back to normal routine!
