The logistics dept is sourcing from wherever they can.For some reason, one supermarket around here has a lot of TP that seems to have been brought in from Mexico. Packaging is all in Spanish, though it seems to be made by Kimberly-Clark who also makes some of the regular brands.
My wife and I did the same with the TP (albeit at Sam's Club). When we needed more later on, they didn't have the brand that we prefer and had to go with what I consider an inferior brand (but still good enough). Even later on, we found the preferred brand at Wal-Mart, so all is good,My wife and I got really lucky. In mid to late February over two Costco trips we purchased paper towel, napkins, toilet paper, Lysol spray disinfectant, and Clorox disinfectant wipes. It‘s all stuff we normally buy at Costco and, completely coincidentally, we were running low on all of it just a week or two before the panic buying started.
We didn’t need paper towel or TP again until the first part of May and, again by luck, found it on the shelf in Target. We are still going through the same Clorox wipes and Lysol spray we purchased in February.
This is what I keep trying to inform people - temperature checks give us very little information, and I hope they don’t cause a false sense of security. For this virus, I’m not worried about catching it from sick people who know they’re sick. I’m worried about catching it from someone who is contagious but not yet aware they’re sick.I believe we also have temperature checks each morning as we enter the building, but I'm not sure how relevant that is as I just read somewhere that only about 30% of cases ever actually experience fever as a symptom.
Well, I suspect that the point is to flag the people who are running a high temperature. But, yes, that still gives a false sense of security with regards to people who aren't running a temperature.I believe we also have temperature checks each morning as we enter the building, but I'm not sure how relevant that is as I just read somewhere that only about 30% of cases ever actually experience fever as a symptom.
I got my results Friday and I’m negative.I was scheduled for 8-9am. Got there about 5 till and we were done before 8am. It was a drive-thru and only one vehicle in front of us. Test was only one nostril and wasn’t too bad. I hope they get the results done in time for my test on Friday.
