In brief: Where is e coli?

Depends on where the e.
Coli infection is located. If you have a simple bladder infection with e. Coli and you're being treated, then it's likely fine for you to continue work. If you're having diarrhea from e. Coli, then there are much more strict guidelines about working with patients and in hospitals. Check with doctor and your hospital's heath center. Good luck!
