3. I went shopping on Sunday; about 15 minutes after the mid-size supermarket had opened

(1 of 3 in a town of about 25,000). I could see several people with a couple of packs of toilet paper, and not much else, leaving as I arrived (by foot; queue for the car park). TP looked gone when I went past the aisle (though I wasn't interested, so only glanced). Pasta was nearly gone, and since I wanted a pack last week and couldn't get one, I got one of the few remaining. Meat was a lot less than you'd expect, especially so soon after opening, but with queues at all checkouts, they may have just been concentrating on clearing those before restocking shelves. Bread was fully available. Tinned goods were a bit sparse; fresh veg as normal.

It seems to me we're being asked to have a week's worth of food in our houses at all time, in case we have to self-isolate, or maybe even 2 for multiple-occupancy households (though if one member gets symptoms, it might seem reasonable for another without symptoms to do one shop that day to see them to the end of the 2 weeks, to me - thoughts?), unless food deliveries can be guaranteed.
