CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio National Guard is debunking a rumor circulating online in the form of a flyer that appears to be from an official agency.

The flyer claims that President Donald Trump is set to announce a national mandatory shutdown for all citizens and businesses.

“If you see this letter, which is still circulating on social media and in public, please be aware it IS FALSE AND FAKE,” the Ohio National Guard wrote on Twitter.
