It's crazy: if you head into a store in Ocean County and I'm sure surrounding counties, you will find absolutely no hand sanitizer.

I was in Walgreen's last night and I was talking to the associate that works there and she says they get shipments in weekly and within a couple of hours they are gone. The shelves are empty.

Oh no my hand sanitizer is almost gone. 👇👇

I just wonder before the coronavirus, did people not wash their hands? I guess it's a stock-up thing, keep them if needed. According to app.com, the spread of the coronavirus has led to products like hand sanitizer to run out, government experts say soap and water are an even better option. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is the best way to clean your hands. From the CDC, if soap and water aren't available then an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol will do.
