The Brenham Police Department is warning local citizens of false information being circulated.
A phony Facebook post has been found regarding the mobilization of the National Guard.
The post claimed that the Department of Homeland Security was preparing to mobilize the Guard around the United States to enforce a two-week quarantine for all citizens to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brenham Police are warning the public, this information is completely false.
The police go on to advice the public to be careful when sharing information via social media and to make sure the origin of the information is coming from a legitimate source – because if it is not, then it could cause unnecessary panic within the community.
