HPAI Found in NYS on 2/19/22 - Suffolk County

A laboratory-confirmed case of highly pathogenic avian influenza was found in a backyard flock in Suffolk County on Saturday (2/19/22). The entire flock has been euthanized, and there have been no other cases in NYS in the last two days. The state continues to be negative for the disease in wild bird populations.

While the Suffolk County flock is only one case, it is anticipated that there will be many more. The states with wild bird positives (250 cases) now include New Hampshire, Connecticut, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. These cases will increase across the northeast as wild waterfowl migrate northward in the coming months. Commercial flocks in Virginia, Indiana, and Kentucky have been affected, as have backyard flocks in Virginia, Maine, and New York. 

Please continue to remain vigilant and keep up on implementing those biosecurity plans! 

More information about the disease, symptoms, outlook, biosecurity, and reporting contacts can be found here: https://swnydlfc.cce.cornell.e...
