Viruses Don’t Discriminate and Neither Should We 
Public health emergencies, such as the outbreak of coronavirus disease, are stressful times for people and communities. Fear and anxiety about a disease can lead to social stigma toward people, places, or things. You can reduce stigma if you:


  • Rely on and share trusted sources of information
  • Speak up if you hear, see or read misinformation
  • Show support for impacted individuals and communities

COMBATTING FRAUD
The Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission are remaining vigilant in detecting, investigating, and prosecuting wrongdoing related to the crisis.

Be aware that criminals are attempting to exploit COVID-19 worldwide through a variety of scams. There have been reports of:
  • Individuals and businesses selling fake cures or tests for COVID-19 online and engaging in other forms of fraud.
  • Phishing emails from entities posing as the World Health Organization or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Malicious websites and apps that appear to share virus-related information to gain and lock access to your devices until payment is received.
  • Seeking donations fraudulently for illegitimate or non-existent charitable organizations.
