My major concern is not the coronavirus itself. It doesn't seem to be that lethal. My major concern is how people will overreact to it.
Well it may not be lethal to most, there still are a awful lot of old and sick people on this planet at big risk of dying if contracting the virus.

Also yes it may not be that lethal but if your town or city goes on lockdown, do you have what you need to survive in your house for a indefinite amount of time?

My wife works for a state agency. The have implemented a task force to come up with contingency plans for COOP if there is a local virus outbreak. As CSO of my company, I've been asked to do the same thing for it.

I don't like what I'm seeing on the west coast of the US. I think it will take off there like it did in Northern Italy, sometime in the next two weeks. Once it does, panic-buying will start to sweep the country. It's already started in small pockets here and there.

We've been prepped for years, but we added some items to our shelter a couple of weeks ago that are more appropriate for a pandemic situation. I've rotated my stored gasoline for the generators so that it's all fresh and will easily store fine for the rest of the year. Our only debate at this time is at what point do we refuse to go to work? We're not there yet, obviously. But it's something we've been discussing and it's a difficult call to make.

Strangely, I've not received any information from our local DPS on contingency plans for first responders.

Right now we're as prepped as we can be, and we're just in a holding pattern.
