CLEVELAND — Those who live in or frequent the Cleveland area may have seen this sight before: a person dressed as Dr. Seuss' famous character the Grinch riding a motorcycle through The Land.

Around Christmas, Cleveland’s Grinch dons a Santa suit for his travels in the city, but in April he has a much different message to deliver.

The person dressed as the Grinch was spotted Sunday in Berea on his motorcycle. In place of his Santa costume, however, he instead wore a t-shirt with a message that—joke or no joke—reminded those who saw it to practice social distancing.

Social distancing guidelines as listed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention include:

  • Staying at least 6 feet from other people
  • Not gathering in groups
  • Avoiding crowded places and mass gatherings
