They may have a lot of family drama playing out onscreen, but that doesn’t mean the “Sister Wives” family is letting their personal issues keep them from potentially being prepared as the Coronavirus outbreak continues to spread around both the United States and the World.

While the focus on the TLC show is still on the Brown family’s 2018 move to Flagstaff, Arizona and the issues they encountered there into 2019 and the family has mainly been taking to social media to live-tweet the episodes and discuss what played out, Janelle Brown has also shared some insight into how the family’s religion plays a role in their lives. Most specifically, she recently discussed how growing up in the LDS church allowed her to be prepared during trying times—like the current outbreak of the Coronavirus in the United States.

Janelle referenced how many around the country have been stocking up on food and home supplies since the outbreak and stated that she felt the church’s advice to do so as she grew up was something that was coming in handy now, though she didn’t explicitly reference the disease.

Several fans replied to the tweet, with some praising the reality star as being proactive and smart and stating they were also always careful to be prepared for emergencies, but a few criticized the message as feeding into the paranoia and panic that has led to some people stockpiling essentials and leaving very little for others as a result.

Meri, Kody, Christine and Robyn have all not mentioned the outbreak or any preparedness actions they are taking on social media, but it is worth noting that as of now, the bulk of their large family is centered in a part of the country that has not seen as widespread of an outbreak as Washington, California and New York. The adults and at least 10 of their children all live in Flagstaff, Arizona, and while the state has thus far seen six confirmed cases of the virus, none have been in Coconino County, where Flagstaff is located.

As for the other states where their eldest children live, there have also been fewer cases reported than the states that have seen the largest numbers.

As for the family’s continued drama on the show, viewers can tune in Sunday nights at 8 p.m. EDT on TLC.
