You can work if you do not have a bad case of it but probably would not be allowed to work in a healthcare setting.  What are your symptoms and are you on medication and probiotics for this?

You would also need to be very cautious about hygiene at work so others could not get infected.  Always wash your hands for a few minutes using hot water and scrubbing them thoroughly .

  You also need to make sure you are not sharing a restroom with anyone.  The spores can live on the toilet and surfaces for many months and the only thing that can kill them is professional bleach sitting for a while on surfaces.  When you flush the toilet always close the cover so the spores do not go airborne.  Wash all your linens and clothing with hot water and bleach as well until you test negative 3 times.
