Do you wear one when sick with the flu and you still have to go out in public? I do because I do not want to spread infection.

  • Not in the past, but I certainly do now.

  • I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room and another patient was considerate enough to put on a mask so as not to spread her germs.

  • I believe many peoeple do not evwn for a simple cough and germs are spread everywhere i do not wear one peraonally i try to keepy cough to myself

  • I haven’t but I think it’s a good idea.

  • Our doctors surgery supplies face masks free (they are on the Reception desk).
    Yes I wear them when sick with the cold/flu and am at the doctors or chemist.

  • No, never did that. It’s quite common in some Asian countries like in Japan.

  • I wear a mask when going to the doctor and to the chemist as you do need to go to both to get diagnosed and to get pain relief and supplies.

  • No l don’t wear one and probably never will,if l am are sick l won’t go to work and avoid seeing friends and family.

  • I don’t wear a face mask – because if I’m sick I stay at home. With true flu people are usually bed ridden and when I’ve had the flu I certainly was. While I’m as conscious as anyone of not wanting to spread germs, I couldn’t wear a mask in public. I stay home until not infectious.
