My mom and grandma always told me to stay covered up when I had a fever, even if you get to feeling hot, stay covered up so the fever breaks. Is this terribly misguided?

Also, I have a fever right now and I'm at work, so I can't sit with a blanket around me and chill. So I have my heater on to keep me warm because I'm chilly..because I have a fever. Is this stupid?

ETA: Is there any medical reporting that says anything about keeping covered up and warm during a fever?
