Businesses and the pandemic flu

Filed under: Biosecurity,Preparedness and Response — by Christian Beckner on December 12, 2005

The CDC released a checklist for businesses late last week on what they need to do to prepare for the pandemic flu (following up on a similar checklist for state and local governments – discussed previously here).

The checklist is thoughtful and well-organized – full of common-sense and practical steps, and implicitly recognizing that many of the greatest challenges in the event of an outbreak are likely to be related to psychology and communications.

Media reaction to the business checklist is here, here, and here.

Update: David Stephenson has a related and thoughtful post on his site today.
