The Florida Department of Health provides resources and information on how to stay healthy and slow the spread of COVID-19.
When a novel influenza – a new virus with pandemic potential – emerges, nonpharmaceutical interventions 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.
Nonpharmaceutical interventions, 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.
The latest information concerning mitigation measures can be found at www.floridahealth.gov and at www.cdc.gov.
