(CMR) A member of the Scranton community in George Town has contacted CMR to clarify an erroneous voice note that is being heavily circulated via WhatsApp. Scranton is not in a complete lockdown as the message claims.
The voice note stated:
“The whole of Scranton in George Town has to close down and NAU for a whole week until everyone is tested. Scranton has COVID-19, that is where the kids are from.”
The concerned resident shared that:
“I understand that there is a WhatsApp voice note of a lady being forwarded around stating that the whole of Scranton have COVID and will have to be locked down for a week. She also stated the NAU as well. I can guarantee her that Scranton is not on lockdown and that the rumor is incorrect. I would like for you to advise the few ignorant set of people from the public know that is NOT TRUE.”
