Georgia emergency management officials are warning Georgians that an image circulating on social media using fear-tactics and telling residents to “stock up” is false.
State officials say the information contained on the image is false and remind residents to always get their news and information from trusted sources.
The fake posts being shared say the US is preparing to mobilize the National Guard and that the president is allegedly ordering a two-week mandatory quarantine.
The message, falsely claiming to be from the National guard tells residents to stock up on everything they need.
The false social media posts come at a time of civil unrest throughout the United States where bad actors are making attempts to fuel fear amongst American citizens.
