What is a pandemic?

A pandemic is a widespread infectious disease, that sickens a large number of people worldwide.


What are some things we should be doing now to prepare for COVID-19 becoming a pandemic?

Some things we can be doing before a pandemic begins can include:

• Stocking up on a two-week supply of food and water

• Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a continuous supply in your home

• Have non-prescription drugs and other health supplies on hand including pain relievers/fever reducing medications, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins, tissues.

• Stock up on household supplies such as toilet paper, hand soap, paper towels, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, etc.

• Get copies and maintain electronic versions of health records from doctors, hospitals pharmacies and other sources and store them for personal reference.

• Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick, or what would be needed for them in your home.

• Have pet foods and supplies.

• Stock up on baby care items

• Plan for extended school and day care closures

• Talk to your employer about telecommuting opportunities in the event that movement of people is restricted

• Plan for a sick room in the home. Designate one room that would work best, usually a bedroom with its own bathroom that no one else will use. If someone in the home becomes ill, keep them in the sick room away from others.
