Say goodbye to close talkers

Kramer's got the right idea.Close talkers are questionable at the best of times.Now they're downright dangerous. That's why we've made masks compulsory across the state – and why we're reminding everyone to maintain that 1.5m distance wherever possible.Next on the list: slow walkers.
