Community Disease Containment Toolbox KS

The Toolbox addresses Kansas’ approach to community disease containment. The first reviewer described this practice as complete and aligned with other state plans. Another reviewer said it provides thorough guidance from the state to community level on Pandemic Flu Mitigation measures, aside from pharmaceuticals. The second reviewer also noted this plan appropriately leaves some details to be determined at the community level. The second reviewer further suggested that the continuity of operations area could be strengthened, particularly by emphasizing the decrease in available staff likely during a pandemic.
