Via press release from the Justice Department:
*COVID-19 ALERT: Fraudulent Facemask Flyers*
The Department of Justice has been made aware of postings or flyers on the internet regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the use of face masks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of which include the Department of Justice’s seal.
These postings were not issued by the Department and are not endorsed by the Department. The Department urges the public not to rely on the information contained in these postings and to visit ADA.gov for ADA information issued by the Department.
Laminated versions such as the one seen below are reportedly being sold by pro-Trump Facebook groups.
Don’t be fooled by phony “face mask exemptions” being peddled by anti-mask extremists. They’re fake. https://t.co/n3AeaL1thL
