Pandemic: Tools and Sample Plans

A pandemic virus is an outbreak of a new virus to which people have no immunity and for which there is no vaccine, occurring on multiple continents at the same time. As the SARs CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic demonstrated, every school needs to develop a plan to address a possible communicable disease pandemic. Making this plan a part of the school’s overall crisis or safety plan allows school administration to quickly implement the plan.

Many of the national resources for pandemic planning were developed before the global COVID-19 Pandemic. As new resources are created based on lessons learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic these will be replaced.
