FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Avian Influenza Update - May 28
ST PAUL — The State Emergency Operations Center remains activated and ready to assist for any needs relating to the state’s response to avian influenza. The Joint Information Center will continue to announce any additional cases or significant developments when they occur.

Total number of birds affected in Minnesota – 8,269,432 (not including pending flock sizes)

All affected farms remain under quarantine.

Visit the USDA's website for information on all HPAI findings in the United States.

To date, animal health officials have completed the following response zone activities:
Appraisals have been approved for 90 of the affected premises.
Birds on 87 of the affected farms have been euthanized.
The carcass disposal process is complete on 27 of the affected farms. These farms are cleared for, and are working on, cleaning and disinfecting.
o Like all other aspects of HPAI response, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting of premises affected by the virus.
 After the facilities have been cleaned and disinfected, animal health officials take environmental samples of the facility to make sure the influenza virus is no longer present.
 The barns must then sit empty for a period of 21 days. This is referred to as ‘down time’.
 Once the 21-day down time period is up, the affected farm is released from quarantine.
Please visit mnairesponse.info to learn more about Minnesota’s response to avian influenza.

EDITOR’S NOTE:
Instead of daily updates, the State Emergency Operations Center will only send news releases when a new presumptive positive flock is identified or if there is a significant development.
