Coronavirus Preparedness & Response: 'Critical Elements for Business Planning'   [open pdf - 131KB]

From the Document: "Preparing for and responding to infectious outbreaks, such as Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a shared responsibility involving government (local, state and federal) and the private sector. Human to human transmission has been confirmed and the virus has spread to multiple countries on several continents. Though many businesses have extensive contingency plans in response to threats from diverse natural and manmade disasters, pandemic planning must address the extreme health and mental health impact assumptions and containment strategies projected for a severe pandemic. A pandemic will likely reduce dramatically the number of available workers in all sectors, and significantly disrupt the movement of people and goods, which will threaten essential services and operations within and across our nation as well as around the world. The ability to implement effective pandemic preparedness plans, continuously monitor all business activities, and effect rapid adjustments based upon observed and anticipated impacts will be the hallmark of the business that copes most effectively during a pandemic."
