Panic increases in Sebastian over coronavirus

Several stores including Walmart, Publix, and Winn Dixie are reporting empty shelves over coronavirus concerns.

As Sebastian Daily reported in every Coronavirus article, DON’T PANIC. The CDC and the World Health Organization know what they’re doing.

We will only resume reports about the virus if it gets closer to home.

For now, wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay 3 to 6 feet away from people who sneeze.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has issued a State of Emergency to fight the spread of the virus, which can also give health managers more budget flexibility.
