Scam Alert!

PLEASE BE ALERT! There are scams going around related to COVID-19.

A new one has just appeared in our area. The new scam is by phone. The caller alleges to be a contact tracer, claiming you have been exposed, needs payment info to send a testing kit, and that you must do this or you will get in to trouble. This scam seems to intentionally be targeting senior citizens.

The St. Louis County Health Department will not ask you for money or to pay for something related to COVID-19 testing or contact tracing.

Please spread the word about scams especially to our senior citizen population. Please review and share the attached “Contact tracing call? 5 things to know” flyer.
