Police: Woman lied about fake coronavirus testing site


NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The woman, who police said reported a fake coronavirus testing site, made up the story.

Christine Curley, 29, was charged with Falsely Reporting an Incident and Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument. She is due in court at a later date.
