The Community

Help get the word out to your friends, family, neighbours, and social groups about the importance of being prepared, and knowing how to get reliable information about and during a pandemic.

Your public health department or local health authority will play a large role in keeping your community informed. Many local, provincial, and territorial governments have created pandemic plans as well. Decisions made by your local health officials may affect your faith groups, sports teams, schools, and workplaces.

The tools and tips that we have listed for you in the "My Home" section will help your community be informed, be prepared, and stay as healthy as possible.
