Sure, if feel well: If you are feeling well, fever is gone, and you're not coughing a lot, there's no reason you cannot return to work. It won't affect your recovery and probably you are no longer contagious for your coworkers, so it's entirely safe. But you might tire easily. Be prepared to be wiped out after a few hours and maybe go home early for a few days.
