|The NPS Office of Public Health (OPH) is recommending that parks modify their existing avian influenza plans (NPS Pandemic Influenza Preparation and Response Plan) which will assist them in addressing the H1N1 (swine flu) virus situation.
The documents below outline those suggested amendments. The recommended modifications involve revising the action trigger levels (see Action Levels for Triggering Response.doc), and cleaning and disinfection guidelines (see Cleaning Guidelines.doc).
OPH also recommends at this time the prophylactic use of anti-viral medications such as Tamiflu or Relenza is not recommended.
