Poultry owners, please note that High Path Avian Influenza now confirmed in wild birds at three sites in North Carolina. “These findings continue to support evidence that high path avian influenza is currently present in the Atlantic Americas migratory flyway,” said State Veterinarian Mike Martin. “Wild birds can carry this virus asymptomatically and potentially spread it to domestic poultry. We strongly encourage all poultry owners to follow strict biosecurity measures for at least the next 30 days, which is the time frame these birds are anticipated to be migrating through the state.”

For more details including biosecurity measures, signs of HPAI in birds, and what to do if your birds are sick, please review the full NCDA&CS press release here:
