Stock up, then stop: It’s tempting to respond to footage of panicked shoppers sweeping shelves of toilet paper into their carts by mentally tabulating how many pallets you might be able to stuff into your own closets. But panic buying just contributes to shortages — and more panic. If you already have 30 days’ worth of prescriptions, food, and household supplies at home, stop shopping.

Check in on your senior neighbors during COVID-19. Many older people will not venture out during the pandemic. Please check in on those neighbors while still maintaining social distancing…
