Quick Response for Special Needs. Task 44. Developing an Airport Communicable Disease Response Plan Template

Airport communicable disease response plans (CDRPs) are multi-agency coordination plans maintained by airports that outline the main roles and responsibilities of key agencies during various illness responses. CDRPs allow for several types of responses and contingencies ranging from response to a single individual illness or death to a mass illness response. They include potential locations for entry and exit screening, as well as responsibilities of partners during a pandemic. CDRPs are also used by airport partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its quarantine stations, to coordinate activities during public health responses. Although not required by federal aviation regulation, many airports have found CDRPs valuable and would benefit from a template and guide for their development. The objective of this research is to develop templates and a guide to help airports prepare CDRPs that are practical, scalable, implementable, and easily updated.
