National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan   [open pdf - 21MB]

From the Executive Summary: "President Biden came into office facing the worst public health crisis in more than a century. COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease 2019] was wreaking havoc on our country - closing our businesses, keeping our kids out of school, and forcing us into isolation and lockdown as our first line of defense. Americans lacked the tools we needed to protect ourselves and our families. Our country needed an emergency response that was worthy of the crisis we faced. A response that would leave no stone unturned, that would leverage the full force of the federal government, the innovation of the private sector, and the determination of the American people. On President Biden's first full day in office, he released the first-ever comprehensive 'National Strategy for the COVID Response' [hyperlink]. This strategy focuses on building a response to this virus that would give people the tools they needed to protect themselves, reopen our schools, and get our economy moving again. [...] Today, the U.S. government is releasing an update to our National Strategy -- the National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan -- which will help move America forward safely. This plan lays out the roadmap to help us fight COVID-19 in the future as we move America from crisis to a time when COVID-19 does not disrupt our daily lives and is something we prevent, protect against, and treat."
