  • Description:
    Audience: Planners of mass gatherings (large events) responsible for planning for and responding to a flu pandemic and its recovery.

    Mass gathering (large event): The World Health Organization (WHO) defines a mass gathering (large event) as a planned or unplanned event where the number of attendees is enough to strain the public health resources of a community, state, or nation.

    Purpose: This guide provides information about nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) and their use during a flu pandemic. NPIs are actions, apart from getting vaccinated and taking antiviral medications, that people and communities can take to help slow the spread of respiratory illnesses like pandemic flu. Use this guide to develop a new contingency plan or modify an existing emergency operations plan for pandemic flu that reflects considerations specific to your events, venues, and community.
