Department of Justice issues warning over fraudulent face mask flyers

Coronavirus

Flyers, cards claim exemption from wearing a face mask or covering

WKBN

The Department of Justice is warning Americans about fraudulent flyers or cards circulating online claiming exemption from wearing face masks.

The cards or flyers have been posted online and allegedly exempt a holder from local ordinances that require face coverings aimed at preventing the spread of the new coronavirus.

Officials say many of those cards cite the Americans with Disabilities Act and include the Department of Justice seal.

The DOJ says official information is available at ADA.gov.
