The Brazos County Health District encourages citizens to watch out for their fellow neighbors by not stockpiling massive quantities of everyday essentials. Hoarding items like toilet paper, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, and bottled water negatively affects those who need them the most.
COVID-19 can be deadly to senior citizens. Many seniors have limited mobility and transportation and need many of these items to stay safe from COVID-19. Stockpiling these items keeps the items away from seniors and could have serious if not deadly effects on their personal health.
Be sure to share what you have with your neighbors and be polite to grocery store staff who limit your purchases. Together we can keep Brazos County safe from COVID-19 through generosity, not fear and hoarding.
