Contact Management

  • If an event affects a large population (such as the result of an aerosolized agent), public health officials might establish large-scale prophylaxis clinics to distribute the appropriate antibiotics to the community using the Strategic National Stockpile. Notice of prophylaxis availability will be distributed through Health Alerts and media announcements.
  • There will be environmental sampling among animal populations going on at the same time as human interventions to assess the spread of the bacteria in the local environment.
