COVID-19 / Wuhan Novel Coronavirus Discussion / Debunking FakeNews
« on: March 22, 2020, 12:56:37 PM »
Lots of #fakenews going around. Can we use this thread so that people who are too lazy to spend 15 seconds on Google can check before forwarding a WhatsApp?

Please include your source/proof that it is fake. Primary sources preferable to news articles.

Rumor:

Go to my2020census.gov and fill out this census form so you can get you stimulus check. Thatís how they going to know where to send the checks. Forward this to everyone that you know. If you donít fill it out you will not receive a check in the mail. Family of 4 could get $3,000 under virus relief plan, Treasury secretary says Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says the payments would be $1,000 for adults and $500 per child.

Census Responses Not Tied to Potential Stimulus Packages
Your answers cannot be used to impact your eligibility for any government benefits, including any potential stimulus package.
Will filling out the 2020 Census impact whether you receive a stimulus check?

No. Your answers cannot be used to impact your eligibility for any government benefits, including any potential stimulus package. The Census Bureau is bound by Title 13 of the U.S. Code to keep your information confidential, and the answers you provide are used only to produce statistics.

Effort required to debunk: 15 seconds Googling "Census stimulus check"
