There's still panic buying from what I've seen, but it looks like it's mostly isolated to the mornings when stores restock shelves. Wife hit the local supermarket Tuesday and there was nearly no line. Most fresh produce and other products not obviously long in shelf life are stocked as normal on the shelves.
I see some talk of #battlestations, so here's mine. It's more cluttered than I'd like, but that'll be easier to fix after the $employer remote work policy due to COVID-19 ends. Monitors and keyboard are currently pulling double duty switching between the work machine and my gaming rig, so cable switching is annoying, but not terrible.

Work+. Training+. Covid-19.
Haven’t trained for a week.
Had to unload the car: a few boxes of books for remote working.
So, light run from the door to the car, take a box in the car, do box carry for 20m, then press the box overhead, and do 10 overhead lunges to the door, put the box down.
Repeat until car is unloaded.
And there you have it, a small workout!!!

"The [death] rate for this year’s seasonal flu is 10% if you use known cases and known deaths... according to CDC numbers, in the US in the 2019-2020 flu season, there were 222,552 confirmed cases of the flu from testing and an estimated 36 million flu cases in the United States. There were 22,000 estimated deaths from the flu (via the CDC)."
With all the talk of hand washing and avoiding face touching, this is a great illustration of how easily something like a cold can spread, thanks to an old Mythbusters episode.
