The city is continuing to advise residents to stay home, and if they have to go outside to stay six feet from other people to minimize the spread of the virus.
Additionally, the city warned against phone and email scams with the following message:
Some people are using this time of crisis to take advantage of others with phone and email scams. Common examples include fake “test kits” or cures; illegitimate health organizations; malicious websites or applications that claim to share COVID-19 information but steal personal information or install malware; and fraudulent charities. Use caution when receiving any email that includes a COVID-19-related subject line, attachment, or hyperlink. Beware of fake phone calls or emails, or texts that may try to trick the recipient into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities or causes. Never give personal information, including banking information, Social Security numbers, or other personally identifiable information over the phone or email.
Visit trusted official sources such as the City of Alexandria, the Virginia Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for COVID-19 information. Visit the CDC’s page on COVID-19-related phone scams and phishing attacks, learn what the Federal Trade Commission is doing, and read the Federal Drug Administration’s information about fraudulent Coronavirus tests, vaccines and treatments.
