Dr. Sophia Yen answered:

Can a carrier of mono pass on recurring throat and/or tonsil infections to a co-worker?

Possibly

Infection
EBV spreads through bodily fluids e.g. saliva and blood. So if you share saliva or bodily fluids with your co-worker, you could infect them and pass those infections. But most people aren't sharing bodily fluids with co-workers. A lot of people have/get EBV aka mono. Most of us will get it before we die. Thus, perhaps your co-worker already had it or got it from someone else)

Dr. Lonna Larsh answered:

If diagnosed with mono, does one need to stay home from work at office- type job, and/or from school? If so, for how long? (to avoid transmission)

No

Fatigue
People who get infectious mononucleosis can shed virus and infect other people for months to years after becoming ill, but mono is not a super contagious illness. You can go back to work or school when your fatigue is better and your energy is up to it. The main concern is for sports. The spleen can get quite enlarged in mono and can even rupture, so get checked out before going back to sports.

How do you get mono?

Saliva

Infectious_mononucleosis
Infectious mononucleosis (mono) is often called kissing disease. Virus causing mono is transmitted through saliva, so you can get it through kissing, but you can also be exposed through a cough or sneeze, or by sharing a glass or food utensils with someone who has mono. However, mononucleosis isn't as contagious as some infections, such as the common cold.
