In response to the spread of the novel coronavirus, some medical offices have converted to telemedicine visits or closed entirely. Elective procedures have been postponed. Some hospitals have rationed personal protective equipment and told employees not to speak publicly.

People have panic-bought toilet paper. School systems have been shut down and "shelter-in-place" orders issued. Officials from the World Health Organization and US government have suggested that the general public wear homemade masks or other mouth-coverings to prevent the spread of the coronavirus from respiratory droplets.
