The County of Marin is aware that cyber criminals are leveraging the current state of emergency to conduct scams related to coronavirus. Scammers may impersonate legitimate organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), or even the County of Marin in an attempt to steal your personal information and money. The County recommends that you exercise extreme caution when you receive e-mails about coronavirus from unknown sources, particularly those that contain links and attachments.
