Health Dept logoIndiana Limits Bird Movements to Protect Against Avian Influenza

INDIANAPOLIS (27 May 2015)—To protect Indiana’s poultry from potential exposure to H5 avian influenza virus, the members of the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) have ceased all bird movements to events in the state that allow commingling of birds from different locations. This includes shows, exhibitions and public sales (such as flea markets, swap meets, sale barns). This prohibition will stand until further notice, likely through the end of 2015.

Rush County Highway Superintendent Jerry Sitton said that the “Carthage Pike will be closed from April thru September from CR 550W to the railroad tracks on North Main Street in Carthage.”
