The impact of the new COVID restrictions are already being seen around Orange with empty shelves starting to re-emerge.
Among the rules brought into place by the NSW Government on Saturday include mandatory facemask wearing in any non-residential indoor setting.
This has sent shoppers into a spiral, with the Woolworths on Anson Street showing empty shelves where toilet paper usually would sit on Monday afternoon.
As a result of the panic-buying around the state, Woolworths has reinstated a purchase limit of two toilet paper packs per customer in New South Wales both in-store and online.
Woolworths General Manager for NSW, Michael Mackenzie, said: "We understand this is an uncertain time in New South Wales, but we want to reassure customers our stores will remain open throughout the lockdown.
"We have plenty of stock in our supply chain, and our team members will be hard at work making sure it flows into our stores in large volumes for our customers.
"As always, we encourage our customers to be mindful of others in the community and buy only what they need.
"We also ask customers to follow all social distancing and COVIDsafe measures in our stores and to treat our team members with respect as we work through this unsettling time together."
To uphold safety in its stores, Woolworths is conducting additional monitoring of social distancing and has put on extra team members support with additional cleaning and wiping down of trolleys.
