Okay, I'm going with my DH to Hawai'i this next week. The catch? I don't want to get sick from my fellow passengers, partly because even BEFORE I was on the immunosupressents, I ALWAYS got sick, now I am on a lot (Cimzia, prednisone, Imuran), and with these, the chance of me getting sick is so much greater..
I've looked and looked in regards to a profalatic use of a face mask, and I haven't found any clear answers... My DH and I want to use them;
1. while at the airport
2. especially on the plane...yeah there may be filters, but I don't want to risk them not working, or because I am sitting next to typhoid harry, larry or mary.
So TSA nor the CDC does not say that they are prohibited. Can we still wear them? We do have the N95 masks. Has anyone done this lately? Are there any issues with the screeners? Just to stress, we DO NOT have an illness, we just don't want to catch one.
Any help or comments would be ever so greatly appreciated. Thank you
