The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has launched a coronavirus rumor control website.

"The purpose of this FEMA page is to help the public distinguish between rumors and facts regarding the response to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Rumors can easily circulate within communities during a crisis, stay informed with our updated myth vs. facts related to the federal (COVID-19) response," the website reads.

Among the questions answered are:

There Is A National Lockdown And The Entire Country Will Be Quarantined For Two Weeks

FEMA Has Deployed Military Assets

I Heard That The Government Is Sending $1,000 Checks. How Do I Sign Up?
