Animal Health Update:
Update on Avian Influenza in KS
Samples collected from a backyard poultry flock containing both chickens and ducks in Leavenworth County was positive for HPAI H5N2.
KDA is establishing an incident command post in Leavenworth County, and as part of the disease control and eradication protocol, a control zone has been established around the premise. KDA employees have begun survey work within the control zone to determine locations of backyard poultry flocks.
KDA is seeking assistance from backyard poultry owners in Leavenworth County. If you currently own poultry, the agency is requesting you self-report your backyard flock. This will assist animal health officials in helping to monitor the situation and control the spread of this disease. Please email information about the location and type of backyard flock in Leavenworth County to HPAI@kda.ks.gov. You may also contact the KDA Division of Animal Health toll free at (844) 255-7794.
