Community Mitigation Guidelines to Prevent Pandemic Influenza

When a novel influenza A virus with pandemic potential emerges, nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) are often the most readily available interventions to help slow transmission of the virus in communities. This is especially important before a pandemic vaccine becomes widely available. NPIs, also known as community mitigation measures, are actions that persons and communities can take to help slow the spread of respiratory virus infections, including seasonal and pandemic influenza viruses. See CDC Community Mitigation Guidelines.
