The Epidemic/Pandemic Response Plan Resource has been updated to include more information on testing and an overview of contact tracing.

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