Excessive Purchasing

  • We have seen signs of “panic-buying” – people purchasing excessive quantities of certain household goods - including food, cleaning materials and over-the-counter medications.
  • Producers, wholesalers, transportation networks and retailers all have plans to meet normal societal needs. Excessive purchasing is counterproductive to that. It also creates problems for your neighbours by creating temporary shortages.
  • By being mindful of each other, we will all manage this period with a sense of community and dignity.
