PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is warning the community about people in white lab coats, masks and gloves knocking on doors.

PBSO says they are telling people they are from the department of health or CDC and want to test for coronavirus.

Detectives say this is a scam and people should not fall for it.

The real representatives do not knock show up unannounced.

PBSO says that if this happens to you, you can call 561-688-3400.
