COVID-19 in Atlanta, GA--USA

by Pinkey Sullivan-Vernon
(Fairburn, GA USA)

We are officially in the midst of fighting the virus here in Atlanta, Georgia.

In an effort to warn my fellow friends and family in Jamaica, I have some very important tips for you...

Please start to stock your homes with products you will need in the event you are quarantined. On Saturday March 14th all of the grocery store shelves were completely empty.

The food was brought out in anticipation of everyone being told to stay in their homes for the next 14 days. Thank God I am always prepared for a disaster since I moved here from Colorado (lots of blizzards there).

I would recommend you purchase dry beans, rice, can milk, cereal and other dried and nonperishable items.

Another item that is important is toilet paper and Kleenex to blow your nose.

If you can get hand sanitizer do it now. The best policy is to wash your hands often, wash down surfaces with bleach or other disinfectants.

Don't delay! When the pandemic hits hard these items will disappear right away.

Most schools in the USA are shut down for the next 2-3 weeks. Don't delay get in gear now.

Wellesley's Note
Wonderful Pinkey, simple and practical stuff, love it! Thanks again for sharing!

I'm originally from cold, snowy Kansas (next to Colorado). I smiled at you mentioning how you're always prepared now because of your experience with blizzards, and smiled again because I am grateful to be in warm Jamaica.

I like the list you provided. Made me think of protein powder. The one that's used to make shakes.
