I love seeing this, because people are having a sense of humor, and still practicing safe social interaction.   As the debate on whether to wear a mask or not continues, the dragon that lives within New Holland’s The Knickerbocker has decided wearing the mask is the way they’ll go.

New Holland Brewing The Knickerbocker posted on Facebook that Leslie and Michael Glaza made the mask for their dragon and it’s very custom.  Both because it covers the dragon's long nose and mouth (or snout) and has T-Rexs, is that the multiple of T-Rex? T-Rex-i?  I don’t know, but there are a bunch of them on the mask.

Since re-opening The Knickerbocker employees are all wearing masks, as they also ask you to wear them as they take you to your seat, or if you get up to use the restroom.  But they have also transitioned to digital menus and have all their eating areas adequately spaced out.  The dragon also is now safe to walk by as you enter.

According to the CDC, their recommendation is to still be wearing a face mask as much as possible, when out in public, not just to keep you from getting sick, but to keep you from getting people sick, since so many patients are finding out they’re COVID-19 positive without any noticeable symptoms.

This is from the CDC Website:

Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others

  • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.

  • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.

    • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
  • The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.

  • Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.

  • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
