Person posing as a Nurse Contacting Seniors in Macoupin County

It has been brought to our attention that Macoupin County residents are being contacted in person, in their homes, by someone posing as a nurse from the health department. This individual is telling residents that they are doing well-check visits for individuals age 80 and older.

Please be advised that MCPHD nurses ARE NOT visiting/entering homes to conduct well-check visits for individuals age 80 and older. Please share this information with your senior neighbors and family members.

*******************

MCPHD does have Public Health Navigators who provide specific households with care packages, which they drop off on doorsteps. The Public Health Navigators DO NOT enter the homes, nor do they ask to speak to the residents in the home.

If you have any questions or if you have been approached by someone posing as a nurse from the health department conducting in-home well checks, please email us at mcphd@mcphd.net or call us at 217-313-5078.
