COVID-19 Scam Awareness

The Harrisburg Bureau of Police would like to remind residents to be aware of potential scams regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, there is no definitive  cure for COVID-19. Internet articles/sites that are promoting such should be considered dangerous and be disregarded. If you suspect that you have COVID-19, please contact your primary care physician to schedule testing. Under no circumstances should you try to treat COVID-19 with medication other than what is prescribed by a health professional.


The Harrisburg Police have not received any complaints of scams to date.
