Bird Flu Monitored Ahead of Fair Season

Bird Flu Monitored Ahead of Fair Season

Wisconsin doesn’t want the bird flu to ruin fair season this summer.

The state’s Department of Health Services and the state’s Department of Agriculture yesterday said they both plan to monitor fairs across the state this year for the bird flu.

There are outbreaks in other states where the flu has been found in dairy cows. Both DHS and DATCP say people need to be aware of staying healthy after visiting fairs, but there’s no reason to be afraid. DHS says your best bet to stay healthy after visiting the fair is to wash your hands.
