No coronavirus here, says RVH, despite scam post claiming otherwise

phony post claims virus has permeated Barrie, but it hasn't

Royal Victoria Hosptial is warning that an errant social media post contains some very misleading information.

The Barrie medical centre says it has been made aware of a post being circulated by text and via social media, claiming that the hospital has confirmed the presence of the coronavirus in the Barrie area. The report is attributed to CTV in the phony post.

Royal Victoria Hospital repeats that there have been no presumptive or confirmed cases reported in the area at all, while it continues with enhanced protocols to keep it that way. Anyone who receives this message is urged to just delete it.
