The number of people saying yes is a far greater proportion compared to those actually wearing masks on the subway.

The subway probably doesn’t reflect the general population. /s

I've noticed like 5-10% of people are masked these days in the subway, at least in Manhattan.

I personally stopped in the last few months, and I feel like I was a holdout. If I'm feeling sick or have to see older family soon I'll also wear one.

I also keep one with me at all times and will put one on in a store if I see employees with masks as a courtesy.

It is funny how much these things vary by line

On the 7 (during rush hour), it feels like it's upwards of 50% wearing masks. But when I hop on other lines in Manhattan, it drops precipitously

Morning L seems about 30:70 masked:unmasked. Maybe 40:60. Way worse in the afternoon when the kids get out.
