MPD wants to warn residents about potential scammers trying to take advantage of the COVID-19 public health event.

The Police Department warns residents that unfortunately there always seems to be fraudsters & scammers trying to take advantage of a public health event .
See below information that was made available by the NJ Dept. of Health from the CDC regarding the COVID-19 public health event.
Contact the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs if you find that a merchant has inflated the cost of products taking advantage of the public health event.

There have been social media posts regarding individuals going door to door claiming to be from the CDC. The CDC is not deploying teams of people to go door to door to conduct surveillance. People should be warned to not let them in their homes or to speak with them. They are imposters. Contact local law enforcement if this activity is reported in your municipality.
It is reccomended that you take the health precautions below; 

Public health recommendations for the public 
• Follow good respiratory hygiene recommendations.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, not your hands.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
• Stay home if you are sick and avoid sick people.
• Review and follow CDC travel advisories when planning travel. If you become ill after returning home to the United States, call your healthcare provider before going to a doctor’s office or emergency department of a hospital. They may want to place a mask on you before you enter the building to protect other people.
