Pandemic Influenza Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) for Massachusetts Government Agencies (2005) [open pdf - 151KB]
"Plans to continue operations will need to be flexible to address the effects of an influenza pandemic on the organization's operations. The following list of assumptions outlines the potential impact on an agency's organizational capacity to continue operations. An infectious agent associated with an influenza pandemic, terrorist attack, outbreak of food borne illness, or similar event, may cause serious reductions in the availability of staff available for work and/or their capacity to operate efficiently. In such cases, a staff contingency plan must be developed in advance to address critical functions throughout the organization. [...] This Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) provides policy and guidance to ensure the execution of essential functions in the event that government agency operations are threatened."
