Beware of Email Scams Targeting COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Email phishing scams are starting to appear designed to take advantage of people's fear or desire to learn about COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus. These scams appear to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), or other normally trusted local sources related to COVID-19. The scam emails include links to resources that invite people to click on a link which might take people to sites that will expose the person's computer to malware or ask for them to provide their login credentials. Please delete these messages. If you have clicked on a link you are unsure about, please contact the IT Support Center at or 828-2227 for assistance.

VCU has created an online resource page for information concerning COVID-19. This site includes links to national and local resources for COVID-19. The website can be accessed from the VCU Alert page at or directly at .
