I'd start now. Based on what I have seen in the grocery stores, followed by what my delivery driver told me today with the deliveries we received for our stores followed by what I am reading in other forums. Toilet paper hoarding is in full swing followed closely by things like bleach and disinfectants. Food will be next

Thanks! I am signing off here in a bit to go you know where... watching US Open Golf (PGA) and Women's Golf (LPGA) will have to wait... thankfully there's nothing to do workwise today (I've submitted my reports for the week)

I still have all the can food I bought from March. It wasn't a lot, but enough to last me two weeks if I get quarantined. Toilet paper I have a pack of 24 roles which can last me to the end of the year. So don't really need to buy anything besides food.

I don’t understand the hoarding of toilet paper from Costco. Don’t people know that Costco sells bidet toilet seats... with air drying? No more need for toilet paper.

a few splash and air blowing and you think it's clean with no wiping? that's like washing your hands without rubbing them together.Face Screaming In Fear

From what I am seeing, ppl are going out and buying all sort of things so hopefully they saved some CERB but at the same time, if more job losses are coming due to a possible second wave, then it will get even harder then!
Or feds could merge CERB and CREW together. Say if a business hire 80 to 90% of it's work force before March the gov will pay 80% of all the employee wages for IDK 6 months or something. So business starts hiring and since people no longer gets free money they have to start looking for jobs. People then have work and aren't at home being lazy. Business can start hiring about hopefully bring the economy back faster with more people working

about a 1.1% rate which is actually better than back in June when less testing was done and the same number of positive cases. just need to be precautious, nothing alarming yet

No, the daily counts in isolation aren't that alarming. But what is is the seven-day average. That's what we need to pay attention to.

Back in June schools were closed.
I saw those school kids all bunched up on the bus and while waiting for the bus.
There is definite need to be alarmed as this thing spreads quickly and can spiral out of control fast.
The unfortunate thing is people will wait until our overlords give directives, when it will be too late, instead of reverting back to many of their lockdown practices on their own.

I would think more people will take a vaccine if its a requirement to cross an international border or get into canada

that's the problem, they are taking it seriously. but not in the direction you would expect. I await the flat earth society protest next week to screams of "omg man, don't get in that boat - its going to fall off the edge!!"

Heh

Don’t people know a shower head can be improvised to be a manual bidet with soap, manual drying is just as effective, if not Moreau than a bidet?

Horde something else like meats if you have a chest freezer.
