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
• 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.
Due to the rapidly changing situation, travel
recommendations and countries with various levels of travel alerts are subject
