Yes I do.

Not a nice look in public ( or even at home with family around).Who wants to see the inside of your mouth, not meeee.
Only when I'm around other people.
I do. I find it very hard NOT to put my hand over my mouth. My son has a wildlife dvd that encourages, amongst other things, yawning like a fox and I really struggle to do that..... as foxes, like cats, don't bother with a paw in front of their mouth when they yawn!
If I was in public I would but I don't bother at home. My husband has almost made yawns an art form. They tend to be melodic and go on for a long time. I rather wish they wouldn't.
It depends on where I am and who I'm with. At home, probably not, but definitely in public.
I really don't know!
I have been sitting here practicing yawning to see what I do!

I don't think I do when I am home alone, however think I would definitely if I am out and about as would consider it rude not to.

At least I hope I do!

I was told dogs yawn when they do not want to do what you tell them, and not because they are tired....

yes I do place my hand over my mouth, taught this as a child, as being the polite thing to do.
Absolutely! I'm sure that everyone around me is not interested in checking out my tonsils! Manners, manners, manners!
Yes. Yawning has a stigma so I think we all try to hide them for fear if offending the people around us.

I hope so
Yes, automatically, as I don't like 'catching flies'!
In Public always -good manners to do so.
If one has proper manners than yes, when you yawn, sneeze, cough, anytime, and Never talk with food in your mouth, that is disgusting.
Yes, I do.
I do cover my mouth when I yawn if I am able. Otherwise, I lower my head and yawn to my chest.
