Although Jackson Hole residents have noticed and remarked upon grocery shelves emptied of toilet paper, hand sanitizer or other items, the News&Guide is not displaying photographs of the empty shelves to avoid encouraging any hoarding of supplies.
With a global pandemic underway with COVID-19, it only makes sense to purchase groceries and supplies that your immediate family needs for the near term. Make sure you have necessary prescriptions and enough food in your pantry to last days or weeks, not months.
Stockpiling resources may seem like a good idea, but it might mean your neighbor is deprived of a roll of toilet paper or a gallon of milk.
In these trying times, when we are all stressed, let's remember to support each other. Check in on your friends, family and neighbors. Get enough sleep. Wash your hands.
