Supplement G: Communication and Education

Public Health Guidance for Community-Level Preparedness and Response to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) Version 2/3


Since 2004, there have not been any known cases of SARS reported anywhere in the world. The content in this Web site was developed for the 2003 SARS epidemic. But, some guidelines are still being used. Any new SARS updates will be posted on this Web site.

SARS educational tools and resources focus on understanding what is known about SARS-CoV disease and reinforcing infection control practices as the key to the prevention and control.

  • Archived satellite broadcasts and webcasts -- Archived satellite broadcasts and webcasts provide a comprehensive review of infection control practices, clinical diagnosis and management, quarantine and community containment, legal challenges, laboratory diagnostics, and surveillance activities. Archived webcasts include print and slide formats only:
  • PowerPoint slides - CDC has developed several Powerpoint presentations based on the material in Public Health Guidance for Community-Level Preparedness and Response to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Topics include: surveillance, laboratory diagnostics, preparedness and response in healthcare facilities, community response and containment, and communication and education.
  • Educational tools -- Educational materials (currently under development) focus on SARS preparedness and infection control practices. These downloadable resources include reviews of personal protective equipment (PPE) and training activities for healthcare settings. Tools currently under development include:
    • Informational PPE slide set
    • Accompanying PPE poster in English and Spanish
    • Training scenarios for healthcare settings
    • Warning signage for patients at risk of exposure to SARS-CoV (suitable for entrances to healthcare facilities).

Announcements regarding the availability of these materials will be posted on CDC's SARS website.
