Pandemic Planning Guide
The risk of a pandemic influenza outbreak in the world is real; therefore effective planning to minimize the likelihood of an influenza outbreak is the first line of defence.
In response to school board requests for support in preparing for a pandemic influenza outbreak, Alberta Education has developed a Pandemic Planning Guide for Alberta School Authorities. It is designed to assist your school community in developing and/or improving plans for responding to an influenza pandemic.
The Guide recognizes the importance of close collaboration between school authorities and Regional Health Authorities, and advocates for the coordination of community-based pandemic response planning. The Guide contains information, planning ideas and many sample documents that can be used or adapted to meet the needs of your individual school community.
The Guide is available in both English and French:
