BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBEN) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo can now keep watch over your Thanksgiving dinner thanks to a Buffalo-based printing company.
Custom716 has created a sticker featuring half of Cuomo's face that you can slap on your window to make it look like the governor is peeping in to make sure everyone is following the rules.
"Great for all gatherings, sure to get laughs, great for your business or your home," the product page reads.
The company's owner, Dan Bacon, tells The Daily News that it's not political, it's just funny, and he hopes to bring some levity to family gatherings this year.
"So much negativity in the world it’s time to make some changes, one laugh at a time," Bacon tweeted.
The sticker costs $10 and shipping is free. A window "cling" costs $2 extra.
The company, which has also created stick-on busts of the governors of Washington, Michigan and California, has already received hundreds of requests for the Cuomo sticker.
Another company, ZoomBuffalo.com, is selling a similar sticker of the governor that they have called "The 11th Guest." It costs $11.26 on their site, with free shipping.
The governor has limited private gatherings in households to just 10 people in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, warning that the "living room spread" is a major threat.
“There’s an attitude that since we’re all in the same family, we’re safe … It’s not correct. You have a Thanksgiving dinner with seven people, you can still be infected," Cuomo warned earlier this month.
With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, and cases rising all across the nation, Cuomo had a message for New Yorkers this week: "Don't be a turkey."
Medical experts have expressed concerns that cases of the virus could rise as a result of Thanksgiving weekend.
“We've seen it in every other type of holiday, after July 4th, after Labor Day. Let's be realistic. Everyone, as I mentioned, is not going to follow these guidelines and some of them aren’t going to follow them at all, regrettably,” said Dr. John White, the Chief Medical Officer at WebMD.
The CDC issued an advisory this week, urging Americans not to travel for the holiday.
