The Epidemic/Pandemic Response Plan Resource has recently been updated to include information on personal protective equipment use, a tertiary control center strategy, and configuration options for control centers and office space.

The resource—which focuses on planning/preparedness, response, and recovery activities for a severe epidemic/pandemic—was jointly developed by the NATF, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to help utilities create, update, or formalize their epidemic/pandemic plans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
