Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (H5N2)
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) continue to confirm additional cases of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (H5N2) in Sioux County as well as other counties in Iowa dn surrounding states. Work is ongoing to control the spread of H5N2 in the United States.
H5N2 currently infects domestic poultry and wild birds. While the health risk to humans is low at this time, similar viruses have caused illness in humans in other countries. Community Health Partners closely monitors the health of people in Sioux County known to have had direct contact with infected birds. We encourage all people to practice prevention through the use of personal protective equipment as outlined in the Health Information for People document that was developed by the Iowa Department of Public Health. Protect your health by following the recommendations listed on this resource.
