SAFETY ALERT:  The CDC (Center for Disease Control) is NOT deploying teams of people to go door to door to ask questions of residents regarding novel coronavirus.

Police departments throughout New Jersey are warning residents not speak to anyone claiming to be from the CDC or to let them into their homes. The warnings follow social media posts that seem to indicate people are knocking on doors, claiming to be seeking information about the coronavirus, law enforcement officials said. 

"There have been social media posts regarding individuals going door to door claiming to be from the CDC," the Moorestown Township Police Department in Burlington County said in a statement

"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 your local law enforcement immediately if you witness anything of this sort.
