[ARCHIVED] Avian Influenza

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza 2022

According to the USDA confirmed cases of H5N1 Highly 

Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HAPI) began occurring in 

the United States in February of 2022. Many of these initial 

cases were in the eastern part of the country, more specifically

 in the Atlantic Flyway. Throughout February and March, 

additional impacts were seen on the East Coast as well as 

in the Midwest. As of March 25, cases have been identified 

in Minnesota, including Morrison County.


The Minnesota Board of Animal Health shares that Federal 

and State partners are working jointly on additional surveillance 

and testing while following avian influenza response plans. 

Morrison County is prepared to support the USDA, Minnesota 

Department of Health, and Minnesota Department of Agriculture 

in their response to cases in our County.
