    I’ve been wondering how less impactful the flu would be every year if masks were more prevalent over the winter.

    You're right about the symptoms, but if you aren't coughing, spitting, sneezing, ect. you shouldn't be spreading germs very far. Like you said some people are just nasty though.

    From what I have read there was less flu cases this year because of mask wearing.

    My state "Utah" actually sent free washable masks to people to wear, so there really is no reason
    to not wear one.

    Last time I got the flu it knocked me and my family down hard, I don't want to see how this virus feels.

    My state mandates them so I’m glad the places I normally shop and have to go to don’t care and don’t enforce. It’s my choice and I will not be forced.

    Lots of folks have gotten sick from people that weren’t sneezing or showing any symptoms at all.
