A woman in Natchitoches, Louisiana thought she was clever in going to a medical center for a COVID-19 test, claiming that she had been exposed to the virus. While there, she requested a 30-day excuse note for work. The medical staff explained the CDC’s self-quarantine guidelines, but the woman said that was not enough. She later revealed that she had lied and was just looking to get out of work. Unfortunately, in the interim, several medical staff members were not able to help others because they thought that she had exposed them. The woman was arrested for criminal mischief the following day.
