Not so much carrying more gear for COVID-19 but I am wearing nitrile gloves when out and about (shopping and such). We’re supposedly in lock-down, but my work falls under one of the many exemptions, as does grocery shopping and picking up your take-out. So I wear nitrile gloves when I buy gas, food or browse the available products at Home Depot. Face masks are available, but not going that far yet.
Better is the Enemy of Good Enough.
Okay, what’s your point??

Greetings from Malaysia where we've been on Movement control order since the 18th. Most businesses are shut except essential services and retail and f&B close by 5pm.

I'm still carrying pretty much the same, as I do need to go to work on alternate days, but I make sure there is food, water, wipes, gloves and masks in the truck.

I made sure to charge all my power banks and devices.

After the initial reaction where people were leaving town and still gathering at shops, bus and train terminals, the majority of people seemed to have to settled down to shelter in.

Take care everyone.

Mae sure the alcohol and salt are in easily distinguishable containers, and check the labels 3 times, before you pick it up, as you are pouring, and after you put it down.

And please add a checkered table cloth for the tailgate, and a bud vase with a single rose: you are a senior member of the forum and we expect a certain level of decorum, dammit.
Dance like you have never been hurt, work like no one is watching,love like you don't need the money.

nursemike... will do... the salt shaker is a repurposed small pill bottle I drilled a hole in... that way the restaurant I frequent most doesn't have to sanitize the inside salt shaker.... the salt/pepper chili flake and garlic powder are not on the table and are cleaned after each use... likewise they have a couple of metal outside tables, and they ask you to let them know when you leave so they can clean them... the tailgate is a courtesy to them... regards
