Coronavirus and Emerging Infectious Disease Outbreaks: How Healthcare Personnel Can Support Military Families and Their Health [open pdf - 204KB]
From the Document: "Public health emergencies, such as Coronavirus (COVID-19) and others involving a global pandemic, create numerous opportunities and challenges around public health communication, preparedness, and response. Healthcare personnel play a significant role in medical intervention (disease surveillance, identification, and treatment) and in influencing patient behaviors for protecting individual, family, and public health. This can be in the form of education about basic hygiene such as hand-washing and cough etiquette to more complex disaster behaviors such as shelterin-place or evacuation. Public health emergencies such as COVID-19 always involve issues of homeland security and defense. Because our military plays a central role in our national security, their health and the health of their families and children is very important."
