The National Apartment Association has provided Houston Apartment Association members with the following information regarding the establishment of a “Flu Outbreak Resource Center.”
On April 26, 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency after confirming several isolated human cases of H1N1 influenza A (formerly known as swine influenza A) in several states, Canada and Mexico. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is actively investigating the cases.
NAA has established a Flu Outbreak Resource Center (must be a member to log in) with pandemic flu preparedness materials. The Center includes frequently asked questions and links to helpful Web sites, notably the CDC, which is conducting the investigation into the spread of the disease.
Visit the Resource Center regularly as we will update the page with the latest information about the H1N1 influenza A virus across the nation as it becomes available.
