2022 Confirmations of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Commercial and Backyard Flocks
USDA Confirms Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Two Non-Commercial Backyard Flocks (Non-Poultry) in Connecticut and Iowa
  
WASHINGTON, March 2, 2022 – The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in two non-commercial backyard flocks (non-poultry) in Connecticut and Iowa. 
If your flock is exhibiting any signs of avian influenza or you believe they might have been exposed to birds with the disease...
 
  1. Call your veterinarian immediately.  
  2. If you do not have a veterinarian, call the Minnesota Poultry Testing Laboratory at 320-231-5170. 
  3. Do not remove any mortality, equipment or supplies from the barn.
 
The need to practice good biosecurity, increase surveillance and report sick birds is crucial in keeping your flocks healthy.  To ensure you are enforcing the best biosecurity practices, visit the resources on biosecurity and signs of avian influenza linked below.
