Two teens in Virginia reportedly recorded themselves coughing on produce in a grocery store and uploaded the video to social media, according to police. This all went down during the panic over the Coronavirus outbreak. The incident took place last Wednesday, during the panic of the Coronavirus outbreak, in Purcellville, VA.
The employees at the grocery store were quick to remove the produce and call the police.
After an investigation, the Purcellville Police Department said they identified the teens involved and notified their parents.
According to Police, the teens admitted to coughing on the produce and determined there was no “criminal intent.”
“The investigation concluded the teenagers were getting close to other patrons and coughing into their own sleeves while filming it on their phones,” police wrote in a Facebook post.
“We still ask that parents continue to monitor their children’s activities, including social media viewing and posting, and to discourage the promotion of any such fear-inducing behavior,” police said.
