Whether the recent outbreaks of measles and coronavirus, or the annual and inevitable cold and flu season, when health scares make the news, the need for more robust communicable illness planning becomes even more apparent. In addition to the health impact of communicable illness, school and program communities can also be affected by a number of related difficulties ranging from health care accessibility, transportation, basic needs availability, and family health responsibilities.

Your organization’s exposures are unique and the time you have to respond to a risk or threat is very limited. You need to have an action plan in place before a crisis strikes.
