Avian flu in Clarence-Rockland

Highly-pathogenic avian influenza has been confirmed in a commercial poultry flock in Clarence-Rockland in Eastern Ontario.

It is on the banks of the Ottawa River east of Ottawa.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, with co-operation from poultry marketing boards, has informed those within a 10-kilometre radius of the outbreak are under quarantine restrictions on traffic to and from their premises.

The west is having greater problems with, for example, three outbreaks in Saskatchewan on one day late last week.
