I might just be tired from lack of sleep because I've been studying. Idk, I really hope my fiancee's office lets her work remote starting soon. That would help both of us immensely.
My biggest thing is trying not to touch my face. I already wash my hands pretty frequently, so I'm not worried on that front. Sometimes during study season my house gets a little messy so I'm trying to be better about cleaning just for my own sanity. Its not like its going to pop up in my house because I skipped vacuuming this week, but the thought does pop into my head.
I guess mostly I'm afraid someone in my family or my fiancee's family is going to die. I don't know how either of us would respond. We have a lot we want to do this year, and it seems crazy to just cross everything off the calendar and put survive as the #1 goal.

I don't think this is a society destruction level event...

Let me put it this way.

The reason why there is no TP at the store right now isn't because of disruptions to the supply line, it's because people are over-stocking. If people bought their normal amount of TP, there would be and continue to be plenty of TP.

Similarly, COVID-19 isn't going to bring society down. People massively overreacting potentially could. So... relax, take care of yourself, take the necessary, common sense precautions. If everybody does that, we'll be totally fine... eventually.

very slightly something. "anxious" seems too strong a word for it
