Pandemic Planning & Response

Colleges and universities are not always mentioned specifically in the planning that is occurring at the national, state, and local public health department level. Yet, should a crisis occur, there may be large numbers of persons on a campus who need to be informed, kept safe and possibly treated for a physical and/or mental condition. The purpose of this guide is to provide a checklist of concerns that should be addressed by colleges and universities in order to have an effective local response to manage incidents and disasters of all kinds.
