Publix supermarkets are limiting the amount of hand soaps, hand sanitizers and other items that customers can buy because of increased demand.


Fear of the coronavirus has led to people stocking up on hand sanitizer. Publix stores are limiting customers to purchasing a maximum of two items for products such as gloves, wipes and rubbing alcohol.
