With COVID-19 now in its second year, health centers can find it challenging to document COVID-19 related operational changes, including when or if to activate their emergency plans and how to plan and conduct exercises. This 2 1/2-hour session will give participants a step-by-step approach to develop a COVID-19 specific tabletop exercise. Participants will be given the essential tools to effectively execute all exercise elements for how to plan scenario details, exercise objectives, and engagement with the safety committee and senior leadership. Participants will also learn strategies to train staff on exercise specific tasks and how to thoroughly evaluate all aspects of the exercise. These important steps allow organizations to successfully plan for, conduct and evaluate a tabletop exercise so they become more disaster resilient.
