Overnight a new farm was added to the CFIA’s  Infected Premises List,  a second chicken farm in the Langley, B.C. area very near Vancouver.

Meanwhile, just south of the Canadian border - in Washington State – at least two wild birds have tested positive for HPAI H5 avian viruses (see OIE/APHIS: HPAI H5N8 & H5N2 Detected In Washington State Wild Birds), although no poultry farm infections have been reported.

 

The state department of Agriculture is advising poultry raisers to stay alert.
