Pandemic Influenza

Plan and Prepare

There are steps individuals, families and communities can take to prepare for a pandemic -- Keep a supply of food and medicines on hand in case you have to stay at home; Practice good public health like covering your mouth when you cough, washing your hands often and well, staying at home when you're sick, and teaching children who are in your care to do the same.

The planning checklists below will help you, your family, businesses, schools, health care providers, community organizations, and state and local governments know what information and resources may be needed in case of a flu pandemic.

More planning information can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web site: Plan and Prepare.
