Public Health

The Flu Code is an approach to controlling the spread of pandemic flu through voluntary cooperation.

Flu Code 0.1Beta English - A Public Service from The Institute for Collapsonomics.

In a flu pandemic area:

1) If I have any signs of possible flu infection I will stay at home.

2) I will stay away from crowds whenever possible and always wear a mask while in public places.

3) I will cleanse my hands at the doorway when I arrive at my destination.

4) I will encourage other people to follow these rules to protect us all.

Thanks Debbie and Lloyd.

History & Links

We were talking about pandemic flu in late April and came up with this concept.
It is still in development. The key principle is to protect each other by being responsible.
These rules should be followed by everybody in any pandemic-affected area.

WIRED's panflu primer mentions the Flu Code.
