    How many people are panic buying in your area and what seems to be the main things (besides toilet paper)?

    I noticed the usual things like any kind of cleaning supplies, but I’ve also noticed food items being bought up. Main things are rice, canned goods and things like that. I’ve “heard” people are buying more ammo, but haven’t noticed that. This was in Montana.

    Bleach, alcohol, peroxide, TP, paper towels, canned and dried foods, medications to treat pain and fever.

    Basically anything that takes a while to expire.

    Things aren't too bad as far as shopping goes by us. No masks, hand sanitizer, wipes, disinfectant spray or mountain house backpacking meals. Toilet paper, bleach, cleaning supplies, and ramen are starting to get low but shelves still had them stocked for the last few days. No other real issues with food or anything yet...

    Yesterday I went into a shopping market, which is a one time per month occurrence for me.

    NO paper towels.

    NO toilet paper.

    NO bulk dried beans.

    NO bagged rice.

    NO hand sanitizer.

    NO rubbing alcohol.

    NO bleach.

    NO ibuprofen, Tylenol, or such.


    We have plenty at the house, so no worries here.

Haven't noticed ammo sales or gun sales. I was at my local gun store yesterday and I asked them. They said hard to tell where people are getting tax refunds back.

    Just a heads up.

    There's a hoax being sent around, I got it yesterday and my service manager just came to me telling me that his buddy just told him that his girlfriend sent him a message one of her co workers at the hospital got from her cousin in DC. I just laughed and told him it was a hoax, but you can see from that chain how people could think it is real.

    The message is a voice recording of a female claiming her relatives and contacts at the Pentagon and cdc saying that in one to 2 weeks the government is going to issue a 4 week quarantine.

    Those of us who have been preparing since Dawn of the Dead (1978) have no concerns.

    Seriously, wash your hands and isolate from crowds when possible. Keep this thing flat or worse things will occur.

    I was surprised at my local grocery store yesterday to see all the above mentioned pretty much gone but I needed flonase and tylenol and there was no shortage on those. Maybe I hit it right after stocking ?

    The entire state of PA shut down the school systems. I'm at work currently, so I can't watch Trump's speech, but it sounds like a National Emergency was declared? What are the restrictions?

    I heard the state of Wisconsin is closing all k-12 schools as well. They just announced 3 confirmed cases in our county but they were all exposed during foreign travels.

    They say the local Walmart is overrun today. I wanted to go see what kind of plants they have but decided it wasn't worth the hassle.

    My girlfriend, who is terrified of firearms for a legitimate reason, texted me at work today and asked if we should buy some ammo. If anything, coronavirus is making our relationship stronger :cool:

    I hear Jeff found a pot of gold in the Shoney's restroom today. I miss having a Shoney's around here, I loved that all you can eat bacon bar.

    I am hearing that nearly all the stores in the region are being bought out today. It's pretty wild out there but I expected it. After I saw Andy's pics I knew it would be coming here soon. My area took a direct hit from hurricane Micheal, I think memories of the aftermath of that is fueling some of the panic here.

    I walked in publix today at lunch and turned right the eff around. Lines all the way to the back of the store. I’ll buy beer somewhere else.

    so my local bars now require every customer to fill-out a contact form in case another customer comes down with the virus and others will be notified...straight order from the mayor's office apparently.

    obviously i wrote my name as jeff randall :eek:
