Is your business prepared for the 2009 - 2010 flu season?
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with input from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, has developed updated guidance for employers of all sizes to use as they develop and update plans to respond to the current H1N1 influenza outbreak and the upcoming fall and winter influenza season.
Businesses and employers, in general, play a key role in protecting employees' health and safety, as well as in limiting the negative impact of influenza outbreaks on the individual, the community and the nation's economy.
Employers who have developed pandemic plans should review and revise their plans in light of the current 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak to take into account the extent and severity of disease in their community as outlined in this guidance.
