Here's an update on another method scammers are using right now.

Some people are reporting receiving scam phone calls saying they're a medical professional and that a family member is sick with covid-19 and needs to be treated but can not do so unless payment is received up front. Don't fall for this one either folks!

Best wishes, Ritchie...

This is off topic but still noteworthy given the circumstances. I firmly believe if we all follow the guidelines issued by the CDC we can curtail this unseen microscopic enemy together!

Keep washing your hands often, especially if you leave your home. Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose or mouth. Avoid large crowds right now. Practice social distancing. Try to keep at least a 6 foot distance between each other. If at all possible "STAY AT HOME!"

Another important update. There is an ongoing campaign of deliberate disinformation being circulated primarily using social media sites right now.

If you want to get factual, up to date information about COVID-19 here's two sites you can trust.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) https://www.cdc.gov/

The U.S. government's official site https://www.coronavirus.gov/
