Vesicular Stomatitis Now in Five States

Montana and Wyoming have joined the list of states affected by vesicular stomatitis; cases were announced in mid-August in both states. They have 17 and 21 affected premises, respectively.

Utah tops the list of the states with the most premises under quarantine--as of Aug. 28, the state had 78 premises, with 56 premises on a 21-day countdown for the removal of quarantines (the countdown begins after the final lesion heals on a premises' last infected animal). Colorado and New Mexico also had new premises under quarantine.

Arizona released the quarantine on its last VS premises on Aug. 17.

Officials in several states have modified their livestock entry requirements to help keep VS away.
