News of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus prompted many Kendall County area residents to rush to area grocery stories to stock-up on toilet paper, cleaning products and food items.

By last Thursday evening, March 12, grocery store lines were long as shelves were being emptied.

During a press conference Sunday afternoon, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker urged residents across the state not to hoard items and to purchase only enough items for their immediate needs.

Prtizker also voiced confidence in the ability of grocers and their supplies to keep items in stock.
