Exercise Network

Exercise Network was centered around the implementation of virtual control centres in the initial stages of a biosecurity emergency response. Historically, control centres have been physical facilities wherein response personnel are co-located. However, to accommodate the changes to the response environment imposed by the COVID-19 response (e.g., social distancing; mass movement to remote work arrangements; restricted travel), jurisdictions have recently adopted the use of virtual control centres whereby response staff can collaborate and support the response online
