Businesses around the Washington region are getting ready for the H1N1 flu. This week, the Greater Washington Board of Trade is bringing business leaders together with top health officials from the D.C. region and the federal government to examine the impact a worsening flu outbreak could have on commerce, and to give executives practical guidance on how to prepare. The conference, "Swine Flu: Assessing the Implications for Your Business," is set for Tuesday morning. The board of trade says it will provide businesses with resources to create and execute a custom preparedness plan, address legal liabilities and obligations, and identify best practices. Participants will also look at the H1N1 flu's potential impact on specific industry sectors and the greater business community.
