I know I am beating a dead horse. I have two points though in my defense..no wait- three points.
- H1N1 / swine flu did not go away. It is not daily headline news anymore, but it is still out there and still spreading. As of this week there are almost 9,000 cases and 15 deaths just in the United States.
- Even if H1N1 / swine flu is not *the* virus that will truly become the next pandemic, history and probability suggest that one will eventually come along.
- The last- and arguably best- point is that these tips just make sense. Whether it is due to an epedemic or pandemic, or a natural disaster, or any other reason, these tips will help your organization be prepared to continue business as usual…or at least close enough to usual that business will still get done.
