Do you wear a mask when the flu has an outbreak? Probably not. Based purely on numbers (# infected, # of deaths) this is not something to be concerned about. Flu kills and infects way more people than this. It’s all sensational media.

Was in Asia during SARS and it’s honestly extremely horrifying - wouldn’t call it sensational media given personal experience but do agree I am over-scared

I wear a mask on all flights in the five years I’ve been in consulting. Extra bonus is no one ever talks to you or tries to make eye contact with you. I’m traveling to japan in March and am planning on wearing one there full time since multiple cases have been reported, except when slurping some delish ramen.

World’s number one mask-judgment-free country indeed!

Folks. Think about the actual odds of getting it. Infinitesimal at this stage.

Car accidents. Slipping in the gym. Choking on food.

All far more statistically likely.

Breathe.

Get the off white mask

Honestly good tip I’ll layer it on top the surgical one

Same. Traveling to SF weekly. Makes it even worse since im in the SF airport 2-3 hours per week. Hopefully they can figure this out.
