SC man fakes coronavirus, sent to jail

As we all know, coronavirus continues to take over world-wide. While everyone is quarantining, working from home, and stocking up on groceries, others are making fake doctors notes stating they tested positive for the virus... YEP.. you read that right! A Spartanburg County man was sent to jail yesterday after faking the illness. Jeffery Long, 31, sent a fake doctors note to his employer claiming he had tested positive for the virus. Authorities came to this conclusion after learning that the state Department of Health and Environmental Control hadn't recorded the case and that in fact, it was a fake letter. Long faces one count of breach of peace and one count of forgery, which carries up to 10 years in prison. This is a serious thing y'all!
