Actually got a good amount. Only thing I really substituted was ground beef for ground turkey, but it's for spaghetti so not a big deal. They actually had water in stock which I find a decently good sign that limiting items is helping. No TP though.

Glad to hear it! I went in early today, and was rewarded by finding t.p. and flour! I got everything on my list, so I'm thrilled.

We went out early and really stocked up. There was no paper product at one and only about 8vbixes of tissues at the other. Water was there, not plentiful, but in stock. Cleaning products are non existent. No meat in first store. Second had a decent amount of meat, but not fully stocked like usual.

We were out at 7:30. Both stores opened at 6. Did all the senior and medically challenged buy the stock of the missing items???

not to cause panic, but please be careful at the store

1) check out the video about washing/wiping everything--done by doctor https://fox8.com/news/doctor-shares-...our-groceries/

2) i was telling my teaching partner that in korea (don't recall which one) they were sending out hourly updates of who was sick and where they'd been. i said, forget HIPAA, i want to know which area of the city is being hit hardest--how close is it to ME??? and she mentioned that a mom in her fb group for her city (our sister city) had commented that she had it----and the only place she had been was the store.

Don't worry! I wash my hands so much they are dry. . I won't need food for a good week and a half. It's just me and hubs.

Glad you got some stuff.

Yes, stay careful. An employee at a Whole Foods in a neighboring county from me tested positive.

I believe you can breath the air they breathed and get it. Not study based. The studies are showing it can stay in air 3 hours. Itís not just touching stuff. You are more likely to get it the more people in there that have it Iíve heard.

Mom and I received our Costco delivery today. The only item not in the order was TP. Thatís ok.

Costco delivery was great. It was filled by an Instantcart person who contacted me every step of the way.

I highly recommend them!

was hoping to order online to pick up at Harris Teeter, but there are no available time slots at all for the week I can see. No options for choosing a timeslot beyond one week out.

Water

Dr. Fauci was asked about bottled water. He said there's nothing wrong with tap water and he drinks it all the time. So if you prefer bottled water but can't find it you don't need to be concerned.

Now as to TP, that's another matter!
