The Tavares Police Department is offering to test drug for people to make sure they’re not contaminated with the coronavirus, according to the agency’s Facebook page.
The department posted the offer to its Facebook page Thursday afternoon, instantly garnering hundreds of comments and shares. They’ll even come to you for testing if you ask, according to the post.
“With the rising health concerns associated with the Corona virus (sic) we are offering free testing of your drugs,” the agency wrote. “Being that a large amount of narcotics come from outside the US, we want you safe. Bring it by our station and we will test your batch within minutes!”
While concerns over the coronavirus rise as the outbreak spreads, there have been no recorded cases in Florida. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus, also known as COVID-19, is mostly spread person-to-person. The CDC said its also possible that coronavirus could be spread if an object has been contaminated and a person touches it, then touches their own mouth, nose or eyes. That is not, however the main way the virus spreads.
Tavares police did not say if anyone has taken them up on the offer just yet.
