New York Public Library's Lions Get Masks.

NYC’s famous lions Patience and Fortitude don face masks as libraries gear up for social distancing visits

They’ve been socially distancing for decades, and now the iconic lions that guard the main branch of the New York Public Library are wearing masks, too.

Workers outfitted the marble lions, named Patience and Fortitude, with Jurassic-sized masks to set an example and remind New Yorkers to stay safe and follow expert guidelines to combat the spread of COVID-19.

“Patience and Fortitude are the perfect symbols for the strengths our city and our nation need now even more,” said New York Public Library President Anthony W. Marx. “Like them, New Yorkers are strong and resilient and can weather any storm. We will get to the other side of this public health crisis together. But to do so, we must remain vigilant, we must have patience and fortitude, and we must follow what experts tell us, especially as we continue to reopen our cities.”

2. A neighbor has a

gnome couple in the front yard and they are wearing masks. A humorous way to show they support the wearing of masks here in Arizona.
