National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza

In November, the White House released their strategy for dealing with a bird flu pandemic. Here is what you as individuals can do:
  • Taking precautions to prevent the spread of infection to others if an individual or a family member has symptoms of influenza.
  • Being prepared to follow public health guidance that may include limitation of attendance at public gatherings and non-essential travel for several days or weeks.
  • Keeping supplies of materials at home, as recommended by authorities, to support essential needs of the household for several days if necessary.
