No Swine Operations Quarantined In Kansas Due To H1N1 Flu Virus
04/30/2009

The State Emergency Operations Center in Topeka received information today indicating there are rumors regarding swine operations under quarantine in Kansas due to the H1N1 flu virus.

George Teagarden, Livestock Commissioner, Kansas Animal Health Department, says there are no quarantines in the state of swine facilities and the H1N1 virus has not been found in any swine in Kansas or the United States.

Two cases of H1N1 flu have been reported in Kansas residents. Kansas health and emergency management officials are taking proactive steps to lessen the potential impact of the virus to Kansans.

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management partially activated its StateEmergencyOperationsCenter Monday, April 27. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has established a toll-free hotline at 1-877-427-7317 with operators available to answer the public’s questions from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
