Federal officials have been role playing different flu outbreak scenarios for the past several months and the results have lead to revisions in the current plan, which was drafted last year.

Last year’s plan called for closing of schools, restricting travel and implementing textbook, lock-down quarantine measures. Those extreme measures jumped into the spotlight last week when President Bush suggested that federal military troops — not just the National Guard — may have to be called in to enforce a quarantine.

DHS officials privately acknowledge that any such forced quarantine could swiftly turn violent, with people rioting to get away from a perceived diseased area.
