Can you be a carrier of the flu virus and not get sick?

That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those persons may still spread the virus to others.

Can you be a carrier of the common cold?

As for viruses that cause colds, people can, in fact, transmit these viruses with mild or minimal symptoms themselves. In this case, they're considered asymptomatic carriers. They usually don't have the virus in their system for a prolonged period of time, though.
