BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo police are warning locals about a scam making its way around western New York.

There has been a false post circulating social media, which says the city is “on high alert due to confirmed coronavirus at ECMC.”

The Erie County Department of Health says there are no cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Erie County at this time.

Brown has asked anyone who sees this post to report it Facebook, and to get the latest updates on the virus from the CDC.
