Quarantine Established in Malheur County for Avian Flu
The regional quarantine is required by federal and international rules

On May 23, the United State Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Veterinary Services Laboratory (NVSL) confirmed a case of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in Idaho along the Oregon border. Therefore, USDA has implemented a regional quarantine that extends into Malheur County.

For your convenience, ODA provides an online map of HPAI outbreak and quarantine areas in Oregon. People may enter their address to determine whether they are included in the quarantine area.

Due to federal and international disease control requirements, after a confirmed case, a regional quarantine for all avian species and vehicle traffic involved with avian species (under authority of ORS 596.402) must be issued for an area extending a minimum of 10 kilometers around the infected property.

The regional quarantine is required by federal and international rules. This is to ensure the control of HPAI and prevent the potential spread of the disease beyond the quarantined area.

In addition, the regional quarantine will prevent the movement of poultry from within this quarantine area for a period sufficient to allow state and federal officials to conduct surveillance within the quarantine area to ensure no additional cases of HPAI exist.

To view the emergency rules 603-011-5001 filed please visit the Oregon Secretary of State online.

Organizers of events involving birds must immediately inform the Oregon State Veterinarian, Dr. Ryan Scholz 1-800-347-7028 of any scheduled events. Additionally, they should share the news with the event exhibitors and vendors.

For more information about HPAI please visit ODA Avian Influenza online.
