ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB)–Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says a false rumor regarding coronavirus testing is going around.
On Twitter, Poloncarz says ECMC completing COVID-19 testing and having multiple positive results is false.
He says ECMC isn’t even testing for coronavirus.
“Only the Erie County Department of Health’s Public Health can test for COVID-19. It has identified only one positive, the Monroe County case,” the Erie County Executive tweeted.
