10. Oxford here

Lucky to have local shops very nearby (small businesses and the Co-op). They are doing some rationing of paper products and a few other high-demand items, but no actual shortages. The city supermarkets have far more availability problem - it's said, because some people come in their cars and buy massive amounts. The local shops are great, actually; one has offered a free home delivery service for self-isolating locals. As they're more likely to have the goods you need AND with less of a germ risk as they're less crowded, I think I'll be using just these shops for the duration (unless I have to completely self-isolate and possibly do some shopping online).

Stay safe and healthy, everyone.
