OPERATIONAL RISK

Pandemic Response

A pandemic response plan is critical piece of any business continuity plan. The COVID-19 Pandemic serves as an extreme example of why pandemic plans are a necessity, but each year new diseases have the potential to disrupt our communities.

A disease outbreak becomes a pandemic in the event a disease spreads across several countries and affects a large number of people. Recent pandemics include the 2019-2020 COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic and the 1958 H3N2 Pandemic. Pandemics impact entire communities and stress entire economies.

A community bank’s preparedness and resilience during a pandemic may mean the difference between small businesses surviving a pandemic or not. Managing your staff and your operations efficiently through a pandemic is vital to the strength and stability of main street.
