If you were planning on stocking up on cleaning and sanitizing supplies, you’ll want to steer clear of Publix Super Markets.

A spokesperson for the supermarket chain said the company was limiting the amount of cleaning and sanitizing products people can buy because of high demand amid concerns over the global outbreak of COVID-19.

Director of Communications Maria Brous said the limits took effect Friday and will remain until further notice.

The following items are limited to two per customer:

  • Hand soaps & sanitizers
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Facial masks & gloves
  • Disinfectant wipes and sprays
  •  Aerosol disinfectant sprays
  • Facial tissue
  • Cups/plates/utensils
  • Bleach
