Bilateral Lobe Pneumonia
I had lung ctscan showing groundglass opacities n bilateral lower&right upper lobe representing cellular nonspecific interstitial pneumonia what is it?

(The right lower lung is composed of the middle lobe and the lower lobe, so there is a chance for confusion).

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 no longer contagious for your coworkers, so it's entirely safe. But you might tire easily.
