Wondering what your are hearing from friends, family, or news is true or not, here are 3 false facts about Covid-19.

Including, a face mask exemption card so someone does not have to follow the mandate of the need to wear a mask. This is false, fake cards and flyers, have shown up in some areas. Some people have gone so far to have purchased these cards online, which have official looking logos or government insignias on them. These cards claim that the person carrying them may have a mental condition covered by ADA that causes  them to be unable to wear a face mask in public.


Another misbelief  is preventing  COVID-19 by injecting, swallowing, bathing in or rubbing onto the human body bleach, disinfectants or rubbing alcohols. Disinfectants, bleach, and soap can be used to clean surfaces, however should never be attempted to self-treat or prevent COVID-19 by rubbing or bathing in them. Effective hand sanitizers do have alcohol, but they are formulated to be safe for use on hands and only hands.


Thirdly we have, Ordering or buying products shipped from overseas will make a person sick. The likelihood of becoming infected with Covid-19 from a commercial package is low since it has most likely traveled over several days and been exposed to different temperatures  and conditions during transit.
