County officials also warned residents of scams to watch out for:
- Miracle cure scams: Ignore online offers for vaccinations, home test kits or treatments for coronavirus.
- Personal protective equipment scams: Know who you are buying from and read the seller’s description of the product closely as well as the fine print.
- Financial scams: Do your homework when it comes to donations, don’t respond to texts and emails about checks from the government, the government will not ask you to pay anything up front to get money, the government will not call to ask for your personal information, and be aware that no one can get you the money now.
- Additional tips: Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know and fact-check information.
