A pandemic is a disease outbreak that spreads worldwide. The virus that causes the flu is constantly changing. An influenza pandemic may start when a completely new strain of flu virus appears that spreads easily from person to person causing serious illness. Preparedness is the best defense when it comes to the topic of pandemic influenza. Public Health experts tell us
that another flu pandemic could happen anytime. Since it takes time to implement strategies, organizations are encouraged to start a business plan immediately so they can continue to function effectively during and after a flu pandemic or an infectious disease. Understanding the effects on a workplace, having clear guidelines and organizational awareness of how to respond and be protected is essential.
