(WIVB) — Don’t believe the rumors. There is no national quarantine happening in the United States.

Also, flights are not being grounded.

The National Security Council (NSC) is reminding people that the rumors, coming in via text message, are false.

The NSC is encouraging people to check legitimate resources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) if they have questions about the coronavirus pandemic happening around the world.
