BARDIN, Fla. (WGN) -- “Placing a fake 'Covid-19' sign on your door will not stop us from kicking it in when you have felony warrants for your arrest,” the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a news release.

Joshua Price, 28, apparently stuck a handwritten sign reading “COVID 19 infected since 4/8/20” to his front door.

Deputies and detectives donned protective gear to arrest Price on Thursday at his Bardin residence. Price was wanted on a felony charge of flee and elude law enforcement and violation of probation warrants.

The sheriff’s office found “no indication” that Price had contracted COVID-19.
