How do you get ready for something when you don’t exactly know what it is? That’s been the recent scenario in many Countries ,

as people learn more about the new coronavirus and try to prepare for a potential quarantine at home.

There’s a lot more to preparing for a coronavirus quarantine than hoarding toilet paper and bottled water.

this quarantine checklist will get you and your family prepared for spending a lot of time at home. 

Note :

  • that we aren’t providing exact quantities ( that’ll vary depending on the size of your family.)
  • Quantities will also be influenced by how much quarantine time you want to be ready for (two weeks is a good minimum, but one month is better).
  • Finally, note that hoarding and preparation are two very different things — we’re not advocating for emptying Costco’s shelves of toilet paper and those delicious little potstickers.

The recommendation is to get enough necessary supplies for a potential quarantine.
