Prep Wisely, Don't Hoard

When you're out purchasing supplies, including food, personal hygiene products, and other essentials to get you through a potential 14-day quarantine, please think of your neighbors and only purchase items you truly need. Being prepared does not mean stockpiling or hoarding. Hoarding items like hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes only means your neighbors don't have what they need to protect themselves from getting sick.

Remember, we're all in this together, and we must continue looking out for one another. For a list of suggested items to have in your quarantine kit, visit
