Teton County Sheriff Matt Carr warns residents to beware coronavirus-related scams.

“We’ve recently learned about one involving mental health professionals that have been contacted related to the CARES Act,” he said during Friday’s weekly community COVID-19 update, where he urged people to contact law enforcement if they “hear something that you think sounds fishy.”

Carr also reminded elders and vulnerable individuals that they can have the Sheriff’s Office deliver prescription medications to their homes by calling 733-4052 Monday through Friday, 733-2331 on the weekends.

“We plan on continuing the service for as long as we can,” Carr said.

Officials will hold another COVID-19 update at 3 p.m. Friday.

Smith’s Food and Drug offers prescription delivery via FedEx, and Stone Drug will fill prescriptions and have a staff member bring them to the parking lot.
