    Audience: State and local public health information officers, health communication specialists, health educators, and other public health professionals responsible for planning communication strategies before, during, and after an influenza (flu) pandemic.

    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. The information and recommended actions offered in this planning guide support CDC’s updated Community Mitigation Guidelines for pandemic flu. Use this guide to develop or modify an existing emergency communication plan that reflects considerations specific to your community.
