AVIAN FLU ALERT

The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has activated a multi-agency response plan following the confirmation of highly pathogenic H5 avian influenza in domestic birds in the Agnew area of Clallam County. WSDA will work closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA-APHIS) in this response.  They are working on setting up a quarantine area that will extend 10 km around the site of the infection. Go to http://agr.wa.gov/FoodAnimal/AvianHealth/ for more information.
