As concerns escalate over the possibility of an influenza pandemic, the following resources may be helpful to my readers. – general information about avian and swine influenzas, and flu viruses in general. (US Dept of Health & Human Svcs) – current status of the swine flu situation. (US Centers for Disease Control) – a series of to-the-point fact sheets addressing such topics as personal and family preparedness measures, personal hygiene, protective equipment, social distancing, and sheltering in place. (LDS Church)

Preparing for a Possible Pandemic – an informative video for college students and citizens.  Watch it online or download it.  18 minutes.  (BYU Idaho Safety Office) 

And finally, a government video on YouTube asking us all to “Put Your Hands Together” (under the faucet with soap and water, that is).
