Some stuff still in stock but a lot of shelves completely sold out. You can see the little white sign with the blue border that explains their restrictions on how much disinfectant you are allowed to buy at a time.
On the other hand, while Lysol is still sold out at Sam's, the Members Mark acetaminophen was back in stock so I ordered some. Just in case. You never know when you might need 1200 acetaminophen pills (and for $10.88, while half of the number of pills under the Tylenol label at Kroger was almost $17).
Keep in mind that while the number of cases and deaths keeps creeping up and the areas impacted spreads slowly, the panic run on supplies is still pretty minimal. If we see a sudden spike in cases, and I think that is quite possible, and it hits the news, the shelves are all going to look like this and not just in cold meds and Lysol. Remus at the latest Woodpile Report links to some stories about panic buying from what he calls "insta-preppers" already impacting availability. One of the links is to Mountain House, one of the big distributors of freeze-dried food, and they are apparently swamped...

This is a good time to evaluate where you are on critical stock. This will likely blow over soon but it is a good practice run for when it happens for real. Don't neglect to look at your ammo. I am not saying I got a box delivered yesterday and another is coming today but I am also not not saying that.
