Fears of Pandemic Flu makes Americans Ready for Change

"A surprisingly large number of people would be able to keep their children home and away from others if schools closed during a severe pandemic," said Blendon.

About six in ten (64%) of these adults would need only a little or no help at all in order to deal with the problems of having to stay home and keep children at home for a long period of time. Of those who say they would need a lot or some help, half (50%) would rely most on help from family, 11% on friends or neighbors, and 34% on outside agencies.

Work The survey asked employed Americans about the problems they might have if they were asked to stay out of work for seven to ten days, a month, and three months because of an outbreak of pandemic flu in their community.

The longer people are out of work, the greater the number of people who will face financial problems. While most employed people (74%) believe they could miss seven to ten days of work without having serious financial problems, one in four (25%) said they would face such problems. A majority (57%) think they would have serious financial problems if they had to miss work for one month, and a total of three-fourths (76%) think they would have such problems if they were away from work for three months.

Only about three in ten (29%) say that if they had to stay away from the workplace for one month, they would be able to work from home for that long.

Employed Americans were also asked about their current employers plans and policies for dealing with an outbreak of pandemic flu. Few working people (19%) are aware of any plan at their workplace to respond to a serious outbreak of pandemic flu. About one in five employed adults (22%) are very or somewhat worried that their employer would make them go to work even if they were sick. Half (50%) believe that their workplace would stay open if public health officials recommended that some businesses in their community should shut
