Special Containment Procedures:1 While it is unlikely that SCP-5000 will ever be successfully contained, steps can be taken at present to mitigate its spread. New SCP-5000-associated groups, cells, and communities are to be dispersed upon discovery if possible and all members amnesticized. Affected individuals are to be isolated from contact with non-affected social groups as much as possible.

Online forums are to be consistently monitored for the presence of SCP-5000 or associated media. Foundation webcrawlers are instructed to manually flag and report anomalous media as well as archive such items for further study, as direct removal has been found to be ineffective.

A continuous media campaign to discredit SCP-5000 is currently in effect, involving the combined usage of news media, online counternarrative initiatives, and social engineering, among other methods. The goal of this campaign is to sow discomfort and doubt among the public in regards to SCP-5000, and therefore dissuade inadvertent engagement with the phenomenon. Further information can be found in Addendum 5000.X.

Based on initial research, it is believed that more aggressive actions taken to limit the extent and operations of other anomalous groups will benefit containment efforts for SCP-5000.

SCP-5000 is not to be considered a significant threat to Foundation operations.
