Nearly 7,000 residents in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, were sent a text that told them they had tested positive for COVID-19, and it was all a lie.

Officials say it was all a technical glitch when it happened Friday. According to local reports, more than 6,700 residents in Mecklenburg County received a text, and more than 500 people received an email.

Residents were told that the messages were a “scam” and that their health department does not notify people of their COVID-19 test results through text message.

Mecklenburg County said on Twitter that the messages were sent out due to a glitch “in the software system that has been addressed by the software provider.”
