Phone scam offers in home COVID tests

By Kimberly Sizemore Anchor/Reporter

A new coronavirus scam is now making the rounds, according to the Dawson County Sheriff's Office. They are reporting that some citizens got a phone call saying they could get a medical visit, or a COVID test at their home. The Sheriff's Office says it's not a good idea to ever let someone into your home, regardless of what they seemingly have to offer.

They advise to check with your local physician, or other trusted source, to schedule any medical care that would enter onto your private property.

If you receive a call such as this, or you are unsure, you can always reach out to your local sheriff's office for more details.
