that's one thing that has been good about distanced learning and wfh. kids haven't been sick all of 2020 - and by extension, neither have i.

hopefully i'm not jinxing myself here. but yeah, masks and social distancing helps reduce many diseases
Makes me wonder if there's going to be an epic outbreak of colds/flus/etc. once this all dies down.

less transmission over the year probably means overall less transmission in absolute numbers once we get back to "normal". And people are gonna be wearing masks for a while so it might take a while to ramp up.

Likewise , didn’t even get cold or flu and my allergies were very good because of the mask

How do you catch a cold during a pandemic though?

You should be washing your hands, wearing a mask, and social distancing. How would you catch it?
