It looks like many people across the country are stockpiling items again in the wake of the latest COVID-19 surge. To prepare, Costco recently alerted costumers it would reinstate item purchase limits at some of its store locations.

The retailer addressed the situation last Saturday in an alert posting on its website.

“Some warehouses may have temporary item limits on select items.” Costco did not list the specific items that would be limited.

Fox Business reported earlier that of some product shortages at some Costco locations. Toilet paper, paper towels, and water are some of the items customers say are dwindling.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
