The manual for handling swine flu for the hotels is a part of a U.S. government program, which is implemented by the U.S. Department of Health. The goal of the program - is to minimize the risk of an outbreak. According to the owners of American hotels, this reference book will help them to prepare a better action plan and train staff in order to take adequate measures to prevent the disease.

To date the struggle that the U.S. authorities have launched against swine flu, is conducted in various directions.
