An Arizona air filtration company and megachurch were slapped with cease and desist letters on Friday for touting that an air filtration system can rid air of 99% of the virus that causes COVID-19, The Hill reports.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sent cease and desist letters to Glendale-based Clean Air EXP and Phoenix-based Dream City Church, demanding they stop making claims that Clean Air EXP's air filtration systems can kill COVID-19.

“Businesses cannot mislead consumers with their advertising, especially when it comes to health issues as serious as COVID-19,” Brnovich said in a statement. “We will not tolerate companies or individuals attempting to deceive or exploit the public during this public health crisis.”

Brnovich wrote to Clean Air EXP that his office was "aware of no scientific research or public health authority that has certified any kind of air treatment product as a means of universally preventing COVID-19 infections at all or at any distance."

The megachurch, which is where President Donald Trump held a campaign rally earlier this week, has made claims that the air filtration system it installed “kills 99% of COVID within 10 minutes” and that “when you come into [the church’s] auditorium, 99% of COVID is gone.”

Brnovich told the church that its "public representations" of the system is backed by "no scientific evidence." 

Per the cease and desist order letters, Clean Air EXP and the megachurch have until Monday to comply.
