I am confused about using the word 'so'. Here is an example.

I had a fever so I did not go to work.

Question is, in the above sentence, do I really need a comma before 'so'?


Yes. "So" is separating two sentences that could stand on their own. It would be more correct to write, "Because I had a fever, I did not go to work."
