ALERT: Door to Door COVID-19 Test Not Legit

March 28th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

“Citizens should remain hyper-vigilant of people coming door-to-door offering to test you for the COVID-19 virus,” Allegany County Department of Emergency Services Director James Pyles said. “DES learned of the sham late Friday night and wants residents to know that at this time no emergency service unit or public health officials are conducting this type of testing.”


Pyles indicated that numerous people in Allegany and Garrett counties have reported this sham and are posting about it on social media. 


“This is such a challenging time for everyone, the citizens, public safety workers, hospital personnel and public health staff but I want to reenforce that we are not conducting door-to-door testing,” Pyles said. “If someone comes to your home and advises you of such, please report this activity to local law enforcement officials.” 


Pyles continued that any information about the subjects: the clothes they were wearing, identifiable markings, their approximate age, vehicle they were driving or tag number would be extremely beneficial in locating impersonators.

    It is instances like this that causes me to wonder what could make a human being be so vile.

    Stay safe out there, even in times like this, the worst in humanity still is active.

        If Covid-19 takes trump and little pp-vp she will be your president. At last, hopefully, a person of intelligence and rationality in office.

        > Hey Hollywood, would that be the same Pelosi that made sure that poor people would get the same amount of money that married couples who make $150K annually were going to get? Oh, didn’t she also make sure that people on SSI would also get money when the Senate left both of those groups out?

        Way to hate America, Nancy!

    The comment about The Speaker of the House isn’t warranted. This virus doesn’t care if you are a red or blue state. It doesn’t care how you believe or what you think. No matter rich or poor. Let’s come together and out petty differences aside. Stay safe Western Maryland❤️

      > Thank you Linmarie, that was eloquently put. We desperately need more people like yourself, Americans who can move us all past this crisis.
