Diseases seem to be popping up everywhere, but they’re not the catastrophic, once-in-a-lifetime outbreaks we had been planning for. Instead, they are common illnesses we thought were long gone thanks to the advent of vaccines such as measles, chickenpox, and whooping cough. Most of us have an old, dusty, and likely out-of-date pandemic plan tucked away in a creaky file cabinet. Pandemic plans to face that once-in-a-lifetime event are still needed, but companies also need a plan that will work with these more common – and more likely – diseases. Learn how you can modify your old pandemic plan to turn it into a document that will help you deal with these more common disease outbreaks, while still also providing guidance for the cataclysmic pandemic.
