No problems in much of the country.

Because much of the USA is open area and there are many small towns and communities well spaced by a lot of open, fresh-air surroundings. It is when you get in and around the locations where all the dense populations are that you start to notice all of the mad-dash activity to stock up on all sorts of stuff. Now, don't get me wrong as I have basic preparedness supply on hand as a general rule,

WARNING: Stay away from crowded places and close contact with a lot of people!

BEHAVIOR: Everyone, especially in larger-size cities, flock to every store they can imagine, crowd the parking lot, cram themselves into each and every aisle of the store, shoulder-to-shoulder. Closely, they are talking back-and-forth (spreading germs) about the virus and what to expect, standing in long lines and making grocery stores look more like sports arenas or stadiums. All the shopping cats, doo handles,, counters and shelves and other things they are touching and handling without time for virus germs to die or be cleaned away.

I live in a small-size town and we don't have a lot of traffic or human congestion here. thumbs up

As the weather improves I go detecting, off thirty-some miles in one direction into farm and ranch country ... and fresh air, or I head up into the high-desert mountain area to some gold mining era ghost towns which, fortunately, also have me in a wide-open, fresh-air environment.

In a little over two months I'll make a drive to the also small town of Wells, Nevada, only about ⅔ the population of Vale where I live. Most of my time there will be spent out detecting one of a half-dozen ghost towns which are also very un-populated, crowd-free, and are in and surrounded by open areas, and fresh air. I look forward to enjoying that environment.

I spent the majority of my life living in larger-size metro areas, mainly Portland, Oregon, and seven years ago I moved away to enjoy the blessings of smaller towns, fewer people, and a more relaxing way of life. I trust it will remain virus-free.
