The coronavirus is impacting meat supplies across the country and now we are starting to see this become a reality locally.

On Sunday, Wegmans announced the following items will be limited to two per order:
Family Pack 80% Ground Beef
Family Pack Boneless Skinless Breast

Wegmans says the "Coronavirus is impacting meat supply across the country, but we do not expect to see a shortage of meat proteins available to our customers. Although we may not have every product cut or variety available for the next few weeks, we are working hard to source all the products we can to ensure our customers have plenty of options in our meat department. We are confident supply will stabilize as time goes on. Until then, we will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments to our sourcing strategy as necessary. "

In recent months, we have also seen a shortage of cleaning products and toilet paper.
