Many people know the coronavirus is very serious and that it has killed multiple people in the United States and other countries. Some have said people should stay at home in order to not get the virus. People have started stocking up in case they have to shelter at home. Hand washing is a great defense.

Stores around the country have ran out of certain foods and supplies. In some cities around the United States the stores have long lines waiting for the store to open. Once the store opens it's a mad dash to get the food and supplies you need due to limited supplies.

Stores like Costco, Sam's Club, Walmart and many other stores have seen an increase in customers. The shelves in some stores are empty and the stores are having a hard time keeping them stocked. It's hard to say if this will happen in the Bismarck Mandan area, have you started stocking up?
