Face masks that tell a story: ‘South Boston Strong’

South Boston News / August 24, 2020
Tamyra Vest, executive director of DDSB, said the board ordered 15 face masks to have enough for a photo, but so many people saw them on her desk and wanted to buy them, so DDSB has decided to take pre-orders.

They are $15 and can be purchased at or by calling the Main Street Office at 434.575.4209.

It is time for people to stop with the masks. This is not about stopping a virus, but about control. The only way this is going to slow down is heard immunity. If you want to wear a mask fine, don't be a mask nazi and the try an phrase it into something cute.


time for people to stop denying covid is real and masks prevent spread. Also giving you a layer of personal protection. Herd immunity is not proven - sweden has a population of 10mil - we have 370mil our death toll would be off the charts. You arw being the nazi - marching people right into death. Stubborn, ignorant ,false. You are suggesting 180 other countries are all in on control of populatations to wear masks. Give the lies a rest


Jay if you are a coward then wear a mask! If you have a health condition wear a mask if you want. Then it should protect you. Don't make me wear a mask. Life is a risk. Sorry I am not afraid of a virus that has less then 1% fatality rate. You need to stop believing what the government tells you. The government is not your friend. It is suppose to be a free county. Don't tread on me!


1 % false again its a solid 3% you should wear a masl out of respect for those not as immune as you. You need to be respectful of others supposed to protect commumities... dont tread on me lol #parrotnotpatriot #jokesonyou #shortsighted #cantshootcovid #selfish #worldrevolvesaroundyou #propaganda


JAY YOU ARE A COWARD and a government stooge
