Officials warn of fall swine-flu outbreak

Chicago Tribune, August 21, 2009
Federal officials urged employers to prepare for a widespread outbreak of swine flu this fall that could result in high rates of sustained absenteeism and leave crucial posts vacant. Employers should cross-train workers so that vital functions are covered and must take steps to ensure that the H1N1 virus that causes the flu does not spread, officials said. Such steps include aggressively cleaning work areas, encouraging hand-washing, and sending employees home at the first sign of flu symptoms.
