The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit is warning the public of a possible scam.

The Health Unit states that it was notified by a concerned member of the community on Thursday morning after they received a call from someone claiming to be the Health Unit, and asking them to take a survey.

The caller asked for information such as COVID-19 status, pets and number of people in their home.

The Health Unit confirms that they are not issuing a COVID-19 survey over the phone.

If you receive a call asking for personal information, do not give it out and report the call to police or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
