Food and Supplies Needed on the grocery list
The most necessary supplies are things you should already have at this point stored in your home. They are also some of the obvious such as food, water, and basic emergency supplies on hand.
2-3 weeks of food is ideal. Although it can be tempting to stock more than recommended, it is important to realize that this inhibits others from being able to do the same and will ultimately result in shortages for others.
Purified Water is of importance. It is not recommended to hoard and panic-shop all of the bottled water. Only purchase enough to reach the recommended two to three weeks of recommended storage. Water pitchers with purified capabilities are also readily available. if you find yourself in an unfortunate event that you can not find water readily available, fear not, It's unlikely anything will happen to your cities tap water supply.
First Aid Kit: This always a must for any home. For this virus, it is important to have one that is stocked with acetaminophen.
Month supply of Needed Medications or Baby Supplies. It is important in these stressful times to not forget to refill needed medications, If you have a baby or infant you may also consider keeping a stock of diapers, formula, etc. In the event of an actual quarantine process, it can be important to have these products on hand.
Have a Plan if a Loved one Gets Sick. Although it is something that no one wants to think about, it is of utmost importance to prepare a plan if someone close actually indeed does get sick. The CDC has a Household Plan of Action list here that we recommend being followed.
Soap and Hand Sanitizer is almost like findings gold at the present time. It's tough to find both of these currently, especially those with antibacterial properties. Once the situation starts to slow and panic shoppers slow, hopefully, these items will come back in stock quickly.
The first thing you'll want to do is hire a professional house cleaning service. It is recommended to employ these services because cleaning and disinfecting are two very important measures to be performed.
