Preventing Flu with Nonpharmaceutical Interventions
Nonpharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs) are actions, apart from getting vaccinated and taking medicine that people and communities can take to help slow the spread of illnesses, like pandemic influenza (flu) https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/index.htm. NPIs are also known as community mitigation strategies. Help your community be better prepared to respond during a pandemic with new community guidelines from CDC.
