Implement Influenza & Tuberculosis Protocols in Jails & Shelters



No More Delay! State of emergency in Boston.. ER's turning patients away. Pennsylvania resorts to tenting. Health children dying.

Dr. Anthony Fauci (NIAID/NIH) announced that the current influenza Epidemic is on an "uptick".  Chicago, Minnesota, huge swatches of America are reeling and now deaths are reported in California, a state in which thousands of homeless people and undocumented workers may fear contact with public health authorities.

California is critical. An explosion of infection there can create a deadly "second wave" across the rest of the nation. DOH epidemiologists warn that the day s are numbered.


 On an interim basis we urge your personnel to work with the Department of Health to adapt the 2009 pandemic guidelines to current conditions. We are fully cognizant that the current epidemic is a seasonal flu and not a pandemic flu, but infection control remains a priority.


Update: Flu season has passed with much suffering. Now tuberculosis has broken out in LA. There is no time to waste.
