I have always had everything well-stocked for emergencies, so for me it is just a case of a normal weekly shop.

I did, however, manage to secure some boxes of latex and vinyl gloves, tissues and baby wipes,as a donation for where my daughter works (local charitable trust) with disabled adults, most of whom are in nappies and some of them need thorough cleaning. When I looked on the medical suppliers site a couple days after, they had sold out of all face masks and gloves. They had already sold out of antibacterial when I ordered. I have received the parcel now to take to my daughter for next week.

We are about to travel home (by car) with one overnight stop from Charleston, SC to Cape Cod, MA. We have read up on things to do as a safeguard, e.g., put the TV remote in the hotel room in a ziplock bag (probably wise whether under a pandemic threat or not).
A friend who goes back and forth to France a lot on business warned us before things really got cranked up here about what to make sure we had on hand - cough syrup, coated aspirin, sanitizer, etc.; so we have been able to get some of each (but not hoarding).
I was supposed to go to a gospel concert here last night but didn't. I want to be as healthy as possible for the trip home. I turned the price of the tickets into a donation for the organization rather than ask for a refund.
I have also been trying to eat more fruits and veggies to boost my immune system.

I bought the biggest pack of TP I could find and extras of some of our staples. This was simply a preemptive move several days ago in case everyone bought up everything. Glad I did!

I'm not afraid of the Corona Virus apocolypse, but I AM afraid of running out of toilet paper!

I haven't changed anything yet. I've always been careful to wash my hands when I come home from being out of my apartment, even to get my mail. I guess I am trying to avoid touching my face, but I'm really not around other people a lot. So far, so good! emoticon

Have you taken any special precautions because of the Coronavirus? Bought any extra supplies, etc?


For us, I've only bought an extra package of toilet paper. There are no antibacterial wipes or antibacterial gels available. My sister made her own.

My husband goes to church a lot where there are hundreds of people. They have stopped shaking hands and are trying to sit farther apart, though he's in the choir and they have to sit side by side.

I stay at home a lot, so I haven't made many changes to my routine. My niece, Alison, is buying up stocks so she can make money when this is all over.
