Pandemic Planning - This document focuses on creating a business plan for infectious diseases such as SARS or pandemic flu. It is intended for non-health care organizations. Health care organizations, as well as other first response agencies (e.g., police, emergency, first aid, ambulance), will require much more rigorous emergency steps, infection control measures, and workforce plans.
