Dear Colleagues,

H1N1 flu seems to be omni-present these days – at least in the media.  So Occupational Health and Safety and Infection Prevention and Control have gathered all the information you need about pandemic flu and prepared a handbook for quick reference.

The H1N1 Pandemic Employee Handbook:  A Guide to Pandemic Preparation for UHN Staff, which may be found on the intranet behind box entitled H1N1 Pandemic Information on the right hand side of the page or by visiting the UHN Pandemic website on the Corporate Intranet, incorporates all of the information you need to know about how UHN will work with you during a pandemic and covers topics such as personal protection, redeployment during a pandemic, and UHN's plans for such things as vaccinations and antiviral distribution if we decide that this is a good thing to do.

Given that information changes from time to time, we will be able to update this electronic copy of the handbook on the intranet as needed.  A small number of copies will be printed and may be obtained from Occupational Health & Safety.

Please take some time and read the handbook.  It will answer most of your questions about our pandemic readiness and touches on some of the things we hope you will do to keep you and your family as safe as possible during this flu season.  I'll be getting my flu shots and I hope that you will as well.
