    Chaos and mayhem stores empty on paper goods and meat. Schools and college's closed.

    School districts are closed by order of the governor in Washington's three most populous counties. That's over half the students in the state out of school. The governor has also asked all remaining school districts to make contingency plans in case they need to close. Inexplicably, even though it's apparently too dangerous to conduct school, the governor has also asked the districts to provide free daycare to the children of health care workers. I understand the importance of keeping these workers on the job, but are their children immune to the virus or somehow undeserving of the same protections as other children? He's also asked them to somehow keep providing free meals to qualified children. I'm not sure how he's envisioning that happening.

    We just had our first corrections officer test positive so I'm guessing a crap ton of prisoners are going to get sick with it, too.

    Schools and colleges closing, some going to on-line classes. Empty TP & cleaning product aisles. Churches cancelling services. Concerts, plays etc. getting cancelled.

    The University I work for is on break this week. All classes starting Monday will be online only. No face to face classes until 4/13/20.

    There have been no cases in our county.

    Schools announced 2 weeks of home learning following spring break. They won't go back until April 5th. My job said I didn't have to bother with coming into the office the few times I normally do. Toilet paper is gone. Clorox wipes are not to be found.

    The wife set up a Sam's order for *ACTUAL* essentials, and they are all in stock. Electrolyte drinks, canned goods, various other normal grocery items...
    She made a point to say "thank you for being a prepper, we don't need to buy toilet paper", which I got a chuckle out of.
    Vitamin C is in the mail.

    Church services are still on, though other activities are being postponed. We do offer a livestream, so we've been ready for remote participation for over 2 years.

    We're ready to hunker down, if necessary.

    Central NC here. So far three school districts in state have closed. That is only 3 out of more than 120 or so. Our school system has suspended athletics and any large gatherings. Colleges has gone to online mode for the most part. Stores are starting to see some shortages in paper products and canned goods. No major problems at all so far.
