The City of Monterey is asking all of us to obey the words of our mothers and "look, don't touch" when it comes to the bear sculptures on the Colton Hall Lawn. Scientific studies have show that the novel coronavirus can stay on surfaces for an extended period of time.
For your own health and safety, please do not touch or climb on the bears. They don't want to catch Covid-19, and neither do you. We all look forward to the day when we don't have to physically distance from the Colton Hall bears. Until then, please be a hero, wear a mask, and enjoy the bears with your eyes, not your hands.
