There are foreign adversaries who are trying to cause chaos in our country and spread disinformation and rumors. To help the American public distinguish between rumors and facts regarding the response to COVID-19, FEMA has created a Rumor Control page on FEMA.gov. The public can help control the spread of rumors by sharing our page: fema.gov/coronavirus.
Check the sources of information you see about COVID-19 by seeking out trusted, verified sources like coronavirus.gov or your state and local government’s official accounts. Everyone can do their part to stop the spread of disinformation by doing three things; don’t believe rumors, don’t pass them along, and go to trusted sources of information to get the facts.
