Fraudulent Home COVID-19 Tests.  Over the weekend, the U.S. Food & Drug Admdinistration (FDA) released an announcement warning consumers about unauthorized fraudulent home coronavirus tests. We want to alert residents that, at this time, the FDA has not authorized any COVID-19 home tests.  Fraudulent health claims, tests, and products can pose serious health risks. If you are aware of fraudulent test kits for COVID-19, please report them to the FDA. Reports may be sent via email to: FDA-COVID-19-Fraudulent-Products@fda.hhs.gov.
