Disinformation is dangerous in times of emergency. Help prevent the spread and anxiety of COVID-19 by keeping up-to-date with the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the California Department of Public Health.  These sites are updated continuously with COVID-19 facts, statistics, and guidelines to protect San Franciscans and prevent the spread of the disease.  The Board of Supervisor’s website is also being updated continuously with local resources and information.

Beware of unsolicited callers offering coronavirus testing or other COVID-19 related services, and never give out personal or financial information over the phone to unsolicited callers. There are reports of numerous scams being attempted against concerned and frightened San Franciscans, online and through unsolicited phone calls.  Unsolicited scam callers may attempt to reach you claiming to be phone service operators; banks or credit card companies; public agencies; virus testing facilities; utilities services; or research facilities such as the World Health Organization, the Mayo Clinic, or Johns Hopkins University Medical Center. If you are unsure of the origin, hang up and call the organization back directly to confirm whether it is a legitimate caller. Never give out your personal or financial information.

Never click on online or text links from sources you don’t know. At this time, many fraudulent websites are being registered which attempt to profit from people’s fears and concerns over the COVID-19 virus.  You may receive unsolicited emails or text messages impersonating your bank, credit card company, utility services or other companies.  These websites may try to contact you via email offering testing services, vaccines, or access to supplies or other COVID-19 related services. Beware of these unsolicited scams and never click links from suspicious unsolicited emails or text messages.  These fraudulent websites may also attempt to contact you through social media and should always be avoided.
