Be aware of fraudulent COVID-19 test kits

Post Date:03/24/2020 10:29 AM

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is beginning to see unauthorized fraudulent COVID-19 home test kits for sale. They have asked for the help of law enforcement agencies throughout the country to spread the word that at this time, the FDA has not authorized any test that is available for purchase for testing at home for COVID-19.

Not only do these test kits take your money, but their fraudulent results can lead people to delay necessary medical care. If you have coronavirus-like symptoms, visit your doctor. If you are uninsured or do not have an established doctor, CommUnityCare Health Centers has a hotline for Travis County residents at 512-978-8775.

If you see a fraudulent COVID-19 test kit for sale, please report it to the FDA via email at FDA-COVID-19-Fraudulent-Products@fda.hhs.gov.

Stay safe and healthy Pflugerville.
