I'm curious - I have 2 Facebook friends who have had Covid. Neither one of them went public about it. Both told me privately because they know I've been following it closely.  

I have a 3rd Facebook friend whose whole family had it, and he only told people after the fact. Right before they all went to Disney World. <headpalm>

A close friend whose Mom died from it is the exception - she made it public within a few days of finding out, and has been a vocal advocate for masks/protection/etc ever since.

Just wondering what you all are seeing... are people being public about it, or 'hiding' it?

Would you tell people if you got it?  Other than here I mean.

In my Local Mom's facebook group, some of the mother's are open about their family and themselves  having it and/or their kids having it. I thought that was a brave move to be honest. Not sure I would post it on facebook myself if I did.
I do have friends that are constantly "getting sick" and posting that they think they have it - then get a test and all is fine. I wonder if they like the attention or if they are just scared...probably both.
