Red Cross Urges Families and Communities to Prepare During Swine Flu Outbreak
Date:4/29/2009

s an easy, online tool to teach kids how to wash their hands and why it's important.

If families are asked to stay home during this outbreak, it's important to have a plan and supplies in place before that happens. The Red Cross recommends:

  • Stock extra food, water and supplies at home to reduce the need to go out should swine flu become more widespread, limiting potential for exposure to the virus.
  • Be sure to include household necessities such as laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc. Select foods that are easy to prepare and store.
  • Make sure you have an adequate supply of essential medications and medical items for all family members. Include non-prescription medications as well.

Other preparedness steps that can be taken include:

  • Plan for what you would do if you had to stay at home for a period of time.
  • Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick.
  • Find out your employer's plans to keep the business open if key staff can't come to work.
  • Ask your child's school or day care if there are plans to encourage sick children to stay home to reduce the spread of the disease.
  • Identify how you can get information, whether through local radio, TV, internet or other sources.
