Guy Dressed as 17th Century Plague Doctor Haunts Norfolk; Sought by Authorities

No one seemed to bat an eyelash when a guy dressed as the Grim Reaper lurked around Florida beaches when local authorities eased shelter-in-place orders. Not the case in Norfolk: Authorities there are one the look-out for a man dressed as a 17th Century plague doctor! Sky News reports:

The figure was pictured clad in a black hat and robe and donning the famous pointed-beak mask that gave medics the nickname “quacks” hundreds of years ago. They prompted fears from parents after being spotted wandering around the Norwich suburb of Hellesdon during the coronavirus lockdown.

As long as it’s not the anaoymous serial killer from The Poughkeepsie Tapes, I’m not too worried!
