(NEW JERSEY) - Understanding facts vs. fiction during a pandemic could save lives. In response to the many rumors circling about COVID-19, the State of New Jersey put together a website to help us all filter through the information. From fraud, scams, and wives’ tales about the virus, how it is contracted, spread, and aborted, this website has it all. Next time your friend or family member calls or texts you with more, “did you hear?” information about COVID-19, go to the website together to see if it is true.
