It’s Starting
I had a simple shopping list this morning. 

Dishwashing soap and paper towels.   Sad

There has been a run on any cleaning supplies. The discount tents did not even have anything. Hand sanitizer is also sold out all over town. No TP

One highly intelligent person  Rolleyes stated that we will not get another shipment from China for six months.  Huh Huh Huh

I saved my breath trying to talk to that one. 

We need a fact thread about surviving the current situation. 

FACT.  Washing your hands frequently will help lessen the chance of getting the Virus. 
FACT. Stop touching your face!  
Clean the shopping cart handles~doorknobs-counters that you will be touching. 

Anyone have any other common sense ways to lessen your chances of catching the Corona Virus?

You can make your own hand sanitizer, just Google 'good housekeeping natural sanitizer' for the recipe.

Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth unless you've just washed your hands.

And don't skimp on soap or time when you wash; I read months ago that 20 seconds is good.
Hand sanitizer does work on killing the Corona Virus. Hand washing is a better alternative.

Hand sanitizer is good for when there's no hand-washing facility nearby.
I'm stuck here in Cincy until I get this clot gone, good news is I have access to anything I need or could want store-wise. Bad part is every snot nosed being still acts like their living in the 50's.

 Hand washing/sanitizing is necessary for sure but that really dries out and cracks my skin. I've resolved to wearing surgical gloves, the tan ones not the blue. Buy them at Depot or Lowes by the box of 250 count for $6. Can't wear twice and not longer that necessary as your hands sweat but it beats constant washing. Do get some strange looks especially when I mess with folks and wear a painters mask. Not that it actually has any effect but I love the looks I get. Every shopping cart has bottled water, toilet paper, Lysol spray and one kid with a runny nose. And yes I know, I'm just adding to the problem but hey, need to keep the economy working.
The ultraviolet part of sunlight kills viruses and bacteria, as does man-made ultraviolet lights.
P.s. on ultraviolet light and sunlight: I ran across a tip about sanitizing you cell phone with it.

You touch stuff when you're out and about that could be contaminated, and then you handle your phone, possibly transferring cooties to it, and then handle it again after you've washed your hands at home. Alcohol-based disinfectants can damage it, so set it in the sun for a while (or under an UV light).
I read that a cell phone has more bad germs than almost anything even a toilet bowl. Here's a way to clean them

Do not let imprudence control your life, either.

(In other words, trust everyone to do as they should, but cut the deck, anyway.)
