pandemic plan

A pandemic plan is a documented strategy for business continuity in the event of a widespread outbreak of a dangerous infectious disease.

A pandemic plan should lay out how a business will continue to provide essential services through a sustained period with significant employee absenteeism. The plan should also specify measures for "non-pharmaceutical intervention," which means, essentially, how the business will minimize the risk of contagion among employees.
