It should include a revised/updated virtual go bag as well, building upon what you have learned about the outbreak.Similar to the previous go-bag assignment, be realistic, and be sure to consider if you are also preparing for family members, roommates, etc.The personal preparedness plan should include the following:
Where you are getting your information to inform your individual preparedness planning. What information could the field of public health provide you? Again use a variety of sources.
What your plan is for the first 0-3 hours, then 3-12 hours, and then 12-72 hours, i.e., the first three days. Are you staying or sheltering in place, and what happens if you need to leave suddenly. Where will you go? Again, be realistic!
Anticipate and discuss what potential problems you would envision possibly happening across the first 72 hours based on what you have learned.
The virtual go bag should include the following:
All elements for your bag per hour time per the bag template
