ABSTRACT

Interim Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on SARS Quarantine   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Task Force established by the Defense Science Board (DSB) to assess Department of Defense quarantining guidance for dealing with a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) epidemic met on three occasions during 2003-2004 to review the status of current and planned Department of Defense (DoD) policies and procedures related to SARS outbreak response. The Task Force received a number of briefings describing SARS and other disease outbreak response and quarantine operations, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention SARS guidelines, lessons learned, DoD global surveillance systems, and military/civilian public health interfaces. We operated at a deliberate pace as both, the course of the outbreak and the maturing institutional responses, were rapidly moving targets."
