Bio-terrorism is the intentional use of micro-organisms to bring about ill effects to humans, livestock, or crops. The use of micro-organisms to cause disease is a growing concern for public health officials.
In an on-going effort to provide information and educate school districts on the health implications of possible bio-terrorism, we have provided some resources for dealing with bio-terrorism. For more information contact your local health department and refer to your local comprehensive school safety plan.
