An investigation is underway into a COVID testing company that’s been flooded with negative online reviews.
The Center for COVID Control offers free same-day rapid test results at its more than 300 locations across the country, according to the company’s website.
The website claims it’s “partnered with a CDC approved & licensed laboratory” that it doesn’t identify. It’s linked to a Twitter account created in March 2021 that has just 82 followers and an Instagram account — with the handle “freecovidtest” — that has been flooded with comments calling the testing sites “fake” and “a scam.”
State officials are warning people to be wary of illegitimate test sites that could be used to steal people’s personal details.
