EHV-1 Outbreak in Minnesota – Updates and Links

In recent weeks, Dr. Kyla has limited the number of barns that she travels to due to the EHV-1 outbreak, and has been using biosecurity measures to deter the spread of the disease between horses, as we mentioned here. We've heard questions from horse owners across the state about the spread of the disease and the status of the horses that have been tested. In an effort to make it easier for you to find accurate and current information about EHV-1 in Minnesota, we've compiled some links to helpful articles, handouts, and videos on the web.
