Individuals and families can prepare by knowing some basic facts on what may happen during a flu outbreak. You may see schools shutting down for a period of time as well as a disruption of business and social networks. The best way to be prepared is to take the time to review possible scenarios and discuss with your family, friends, and coworkers and neighbors-all of whom can be invaluable resources in the event of an emergency. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services also has information on general preparedness planning that can help you think ahead in case of potential emergencies.
