In brief: See below

There is a longstanding and almost universally believed myth that the common cold or sickness comes from getting cold.
Even the death of president harrison was blamed on not wearing a hat (not true but sounds good in books). We spend more indoors in winter which provides more opportunities to spread illness. No matter how cold the ac in one's workplace, you will be fine.
