The T-Rex outside Boston’s Museum of Science and the Lego giraffe standing in front of Somerville’s Legoland Discovery Center are now sporting masks, as communities continue to work to stem the spread of coronavirus.
The Museum of Science reports that Savannah Hubbard, a senior media producer, spent 10 hours hand-sewing the 4.5-foot-tall mask for the dinosaur. Coronavirus precautions have kept the Boston museum closed since mid-March. “We have a set date yet as to when we will reopen, but, when we do, we will communicate this via our social media and to our entire community,” a spokesperson says.
At Somerville’s Assembly Square mall, the giraffe outside Legoland is now sporting a mask too. The attraction’s “retail store is now open for in-store purchases and free curbside pickup. … The indoor attraction remains temporarily closed as mandated by Gov. Baker, and we remain in contact with the authorities on when we can re-open.”
