  • Absolutely. Any one can carry a virus and not be impacted if they have a strong immune system.

  • Yep they are carriers. I was a chicken pox carrier as a child. I never got it, was exposed, and everyone I came into contact with after I was exposed would get it.

  • Yes, like gemgem said, they are carriers...I am a carrier of strep and so far chicken pox, I've never had either, been exposed to them both many times and I never got it, but I always passed them to others, sharing is caring :)
