I do understand your concern about the gluten in the plaster dust. It is a real concern. I suggest you wear a good dust mask. You probably won't need the heavy duty kind with charcoal filter nozzles--which might cause you some distress if worn all day! If you were in the same room with the construction however the heavy duty mask would be needed--and a shower and change of clothes once you got home.
You might also want to talk to your boss about using an air purifier. They do help reduce the dust.

I was able to tolerate construction dust in our house during remodel (not living in it) if I did NOT eat in there. Dust gets everywhere... you can wash your hands 100 times but it still gets on them, and your utensils, etc.
I also showered and discarded my clothes as soon as I got home.
I did ok if I was careful. Just try to act like it's flu season - don't touch your face, etc. Wash your hands often, wipe down your work area.

Thank You for posting this, i learn something from this forum every day. I read the back of my lightweight sheetrock spackle can, pretty scarey stuff in there. I will be very, very, careful with it!

Another thought, drink things out of waterbottles or something of that sort to help keep it out.
I hadn't even go to the point of when I need to drink. Hopefully since I will only be there a couple hours tomorrow it wont be a problem. I hope they can keep me out of the office til they are done.
