Phase II Recommendations for Horse Show Event Managers Regarding EHV 1 Biosecurity Procedures These biosecurity guidelines have been developed by CDFA veterinarians and the faculty at the School of Veterinary Medicine University of California Davis CA to minimize the risk of transmission of infectious diseases at public equestrian events Based on what is known today June 8 2011 regarding the current neuropathogenic EHV 1 outbreak we are suggesting that managers of horse shows or events occurring in California during the month of June 2011 incorporate the following biosecurity measures to minimize the risk for all participants 1 Non exposed horses Event managers should create a short document for participants to sign upon arrival at the show grounds to confirm that their horses mules and burros attending the show event have not been exposed to a clinical case of the neuropathogenic strain of EHV 1 and have not been on premises with a confirmed positive case within the prior 28 days Clinical case is defined as a horse testing positive on a laboratory test for the neuropathogenic strain of EHV 1 and having exhibited compatible clinical signs for EHV 1 which may include fever abnormal nasal discharge and or neurologic signs 2 For exposed horses Event managers should create a short document for participants to sign upon arrival at the show grounds to confirm that their horses mules and burros attending the show event have not demonstrated clinical signs compatible with EHV 1 for the preceding 28 days and no other horses on the premises where they reside have shown clinical signs fever abnormal nasal discharge and or neurologic signs for the preceding 28 days Additionally it is recommended that the owner trainer of an exposed horse showing residual neurological deficits provide evidence of two negative tests for the neuropathogenic strain of EHV 1 within the prior 14 days Exposed horse is defined as a horse which has resided on a premises with a confirmed positive EHV 1
