    Only if you kissed a girl in the hallway that had covid, or licked a doorknob, and even then you probably won't die. Don't get me wrong. It's a serious disease. Wear a mask and stay 6 feet away from people. But not many (relatively) that catch it die from it.  If you saw no people don't even think about it.

    No. I got my ears pierced a while ago, and since I am a fainter I took my mask off so I could breathe. Everyone else was masked (yes there were people in the store) and I WAS FINE  u said there was noone there.......ur fine.

    No. Because people who have Covid were also wearing masks. It is unlikely they can spread the virus to you.

    I wouldn't worry about the whole mask thing.  Me, and two family members went to a saturday market for a couple of hours, wore our masks the entire time we were there, and afterwards we went to a local mall for roughly an hour, kept our masks on the entire time.  I am also required to wear my mask while I'm at work, other than eating food, and lifting it up long enough to take a drink.  We were also at least 4' to 6' away from others.

    A day before this market and mall trip, I had symptoms of a cold starting, due to our weather changing.  Happens to me every year.  6 days later I come home from work, and I'm shivering cold, thermometer said 72 degrees in the room.  Turned my space heater up, and with that and the furnace running, my room was getting to be 80 degrees, felt like it was 73 degrees by that point.

    Went and got tested, it said positive.  I never lost taste or smell, never had problems breathing, no muscle pains, the only symptoms I had was, a cough (due to phlegm being in my throat) sore throat (from trying to forcefully cough up the phlegm), tiredness and loss of appetite.

    What I'm trying to say is, all the times I've been wearing my mask.... apparently I STILL tested positive.  Mask or no mask, eventually everyone will have it.  Kinda like when one person gets sick and passes it on to someone else, and so on and so forth, that's called normality.

    Highly unlikely.  The COVID virus only stays airborne in an strength for a few seconds after a person breaths them out.  If there was no one in the hallway it is very very unlikely that there would active viruses still floating in the air that could reach you.

    Highly unlikely.
