OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Robocalls circulating in the Omaha-area tell people they tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The call shows the same phone number as the CUMC-Bergan Mercy switchboard.

But, a CHI Health spokesperson says the calls are not coming from CHI Health and the hospital won't use robocalls to share test results.
