ABSTRACT

Providing Logistical Support to Quarantined Citizens During a Public Health Emergency   [open pdf - 56KB]

"Government and local/regional public health departments should develop plans for providing logistical support to individuals quarantined as a result of a public health emergency. A clear, yet flexible, response plan for delivering food, medicine, and supplies to affected individuals should be developed and widely communicated once a quarantine is announced. Public health officials should coordinate with major volunteer and relief organizations to boost manpower and avoid duplication of effort, and should be receptive to smaller groups willing to offer assistance during a crisis."
