🚨 Beware of false messages
❌ There are false claims that Police are conducting road blocks, and checking on residential units to enforce safe distancing measures

✅ Police conduct roadblocks for law enforcement purposes
✅ Incident in a residential unit arose from a family dispute

‼ Beware of phone scams
Be wary of scammers impersonating MOH staff or automated voice calls that ask for financial details, or claim that officials have seized contraband parcels under your name
