He initially took note of the empty beaches when he returned. “Not a swinging dik onFt Lauderdale Beach,” he observed and shared a photo. Spring Break 2020 brought to you by #coronavirus. All beach goers banned. Today at 5 pm all restaurants and bars close for 30 days. Be safe and use common sense peeps,” he shared on Instagram.

Rosbach advises fans to think of others

Panicked consumers made a run at the store, grabbing every disinfectant and roll of toilet paper they could find. This left nothing for the people who chose not to hoard as many people still don’t have any supplies to ride out the pandemic.

In his latest video message, Rosbach advised fans to avoid snatching the last package of toilet paper. Like many people, he admitted he didn’t know what day of the week it was into the quarantine. But said he and his wife Mary Anne were doing fine, going on their bike rides and staying home. He added that now was not the time to relax being quarantined and to remain vigilant.

He also had a message for people who insisted on hoarding. “And for God’s sakes don’t buy the last package of toilet paper, seriously people? If there’s one pack left, leave it for someone who really needs it.”

This ‘RHOC’ cast member was called out for hoarding

Alexis Bellino from The Real Housewives of Orange County and a Below Deck charter guest rushed to Costco to load up on supplies. She shared a video of her local Costco which showed people with overflowing carts as they hoarded whatever they could find in the store. “Pandamonia is happening here @costco this morning! Definitely more than 250 people here….second trip in a week, we are stocked!” she wrote along with her video.

Bellino was more than stocked as she included a shot of her fully stuffed cart to the camera. She also showed the people around her who were also panic buying. Bellino claimed that President Donald Trump’s speech made her think she was going to be stuck in the house for weeks and she needed to stock up. In one of her videos, a man can be heard saying that toilet paper and paper towels were already sold out as people crowded together.

Many people who saw the video were disappointed with the hoarding and panic buying. “And you are the problem why it’s nothing left in the selves for people,” one person pointed out. Another person added, “Agreed… “sharing is caring”!! At some point – the stores will have to set limits so that hoarding supplies will be discouraged😢.”
