Wonderful advice, Truffle!

My husband took a picture from Kroger on Friday of the toilet paper aisle - totally empty. Luckily we have plenty at home for the 2 of us.

Of my department of five, 4 of us are high risk. We may be working from home soon. While I am high risk due to an auto immune disorder, my husband is 67. If I brought something home to him I would never get over that. It's just scary times.

My son who is 33, is diabetic, and on the kidney transplant list, so he is high risk. That scares the bejezus out of me.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Folks have been hitting up the big box stores for these supplies. I found toilet paper, paper towels and Emergen-C at Walgreens. Other folks have had success at drugstores and smaller stores as well. So if you're in need - try those first. I haven't found hand sanitizer anywhere.

JWills, I know this scares you. It would scare anyone with high risk family and friends. HUGS!!!

I was diagnosed with MS around the turn of the year … I was just about to start a drug to help control it, it is an immunosuppressant. So, I'm not starting any drugs yet. I'm hoping to get a different drug approved by the insurance, but that's a hollow hope.

It sucks having your choices being … be sick or be sick differently

You are here
Distilled water has also been flying of the shelf in NY. CVS and Wallgreens were sold out but I found some at a local small pharmacy.

The CVS stock person at the smallest CVS told me that they received and then sold 80 gallons in a few hours. They are not expecting more for at least a week.

People, this is not a hurricane or flood situation there is no reason to hoard cases of items that will take months to use.

Anywhere I want to be
With restaurants, bars, and retail stores closing in various states, people become concerned that grocery stores will be the next. Add the fear of the unknown and now people that can are starting to hoard.

I don't think grocery stores will close, but there may be issues with them getting products as this goes on.

My staff informed me some Instagram model is trying to start a lick the toilet coronavirus challenge. I hope social media shuts her accounts down.

I'm *really* sorry to hear this. MS is a terrible, insidious disease. frown I hope they come up with a workable option for you.

Interesting about the CV and the four ways it would end:

We have several active cases where I live. We 'may' temporarily close our lobbies...but we were told in no real uncertain terms we were expected to be here. Even if we ARE capable of working remotely, it would never cross their minds that something like that is actually possible.

I found some gloves for the customer contact folks [tellers mainly] today...at Dollar General. Baby wipes too...there are NO [wet] wipes on line, or in major stores...not even any thermometers. It beats all I've ever seen really.

We wont even discuss food.

Some of the supermarkets here in Massachusetts have started to shorten their hours to give them more time to restock those naked shelves. Stores that have been open from 7 to 11 are opening at 7:30 or 8 and closing at 8 or 9. One of the chains, Stop and Shop is using 7:30 am to 8 pm in most of their stores, and, starting tomorrow, adding 90 minutes of "seniors only" shopping from 6 to 7:30 a.m. They want only us old folk over age 60 to be safe from the hordes of other shoppers. Maybe there will be some toilet paper on the shelves at 6 a.m.? Or Purell? Milk?

Just an FYI.

Benzalkonium chloride, the active ingredient in Wet Ones, was found to be less effective than ethanol (as in alcohol, the active ingredient in some sanitizers), hydrogen peroxide, or sodium hypochlorite on coronaviruses in an analysis of 22 studies published in February 2020.

And baby wipes are no good as they do not contain alcohol.

I needed baby wipes for babies. Not for sanitizing purposes....but apparently people are really desperate OR afraid of being home with no baby wipes and.....a baby or two.

Thinking of you DoS. Hugs from 6 ft away. I'm older and an ex-35 year smoker with allergies and asthma. Prayers for all of us to get thru this "adventure" mentally (here at work) and physically. It's not going to get any better real soon.

For a laugh - 3 hours into home schooling and 1 is suspended for skipping class and the other one has already been expelled.

My wife is fighting this at the coal-face; an RN in Ohio. Please save the politics/opinions for a brighter day and follow guidance from State and local government, it will flatten the curve, prevent health systems being overrun and save lives.

The document linked below is the modelling from the Imperial College London that apparently sparked the change in approach from the UK and US. Incidentally, the lead researcher, Prof. Neil Ferguson, has had to self-isolate after developing symptoms himself.

Be prepared, while the measures may flatten the curve, a statement from Angela Merkel last week was they expect 60-70% of the German population will catch this and its reasonable to assume a similar percentage here.

Pulling people out of the ditc...
Graduate School of Banking at LSU has cancelled the 2020 session, originally scheduled May 24-June 4. They were not in position to move to another school, LSU could not accommodate a later summer schedule, and going online was not something they could facilitate in short order.

I have one daughter that is a RN in a level 1 trauma hospital and my other daughter is a CNA in a nursing home. So needless to say we are worried sick about both of them. Say a prayer for everyone.
