How to stay prepared during the Coronavirus Pandemic

While we continue to live through this coronavirus pandemic, there are many supplies that are essential for all homeowners, which we should all consider buying in bulk. There are also supplies that aren’t as necessary for everyone. Nobody knows how long this will last, which makes it important for homeowners to stock up on all of the essentials. Here’s a guide on what to buy during quarantine to ensure that they are staying safe and efficient! 

We have all been advised to stay at home as much as we can, as well as avoid going to malls to practice social distancing.

  • Purchase three weeks worth of food, enough to feed every family member

  • Avoid purchasing fresh foods that will go bad quickly, and start loading up on canned and frozen foods. It’s also a good idea to make sure you have a can opener

  • Remember to get snacks. With your children home during the day, snack time may be needed.

    • Rice

    • Pasta

    • Beans

    • Oats

    • Coffee

    • Popcorn

One of the best ways to protect yourself from getting sick is by washing your hands with soap and water often. It’s also important that you are keeping your body, clothes and bedware clean and germ-free. Here are some items that you should definitely consider purchasing if needed:

  • Hand soap
