After Governor Jay Inslee issued new COVID-19 guidelines on Sunday in response to increasing daily COVID-19 case counts, some Seattleites have embarked on massive shopping sprees.

Although the Washington Emergency Management is reminding people to avoid panic-buying, many are continuing to clear out the shelves.

A Costco employee told Daily Hive that anything to do with coronavirus is “pretty much sold out,” including paper towels, toilet paper, Lysol wipes, and Kleenex.

According to Twitter user NoJustNo, it was impossible to find toilet paper in the city Monday and Costco was sold out at 10:53 am.
