Part 2
Pandemic Response Protocol Proposal
Should we restrict freedoms to fight disease?
Write a 1 page proposal to a school district leader regarding pandemic protocol guidelines. The proposal should be based on analysis of historical responses to pandemics, as well as actions taken by individuals or institutions to address pandemics. Make sure to incorporate these examples into the proposal’s suggestions. Also, include analysis on inclusion of, and accessibility for, vulnerable groups, and address the tension between personal freedoms and public health and safety.
