AI update No 2 - 24 February 2017

Dear Free Ranger

We have received official notice this afternoon from APHA that the final measures for England have been published that will come into force on 28 February, together with an updated interactive map for the HRAs. The email notice reads as follows:


24 February 2017
This update is to inform you that guidance on the disease control measures that come into force on 28 February has been published on the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/avian-influenza-bird-flu#prevention-zone

A new Avian Influenza Prevention Zone will be put in place on 28 February until 30 April 2017.
The requirements of the new Avian Influenza Prevention Zone will enable the majority of keepers to allow their birds outside, provided that certain precautions are taken; while keepers whose premises are considered to be within an identified Higher Risk Area will be required to adhere to stricter controls.

You should refer to the interactive map on gov.uk to identify whether you are in a Higher Risk Area.”
There are different arrangements in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Link to the interactive map is at http://www.gisdiseasemap.defra.gov.uk/intmaps/avian/map.jsp
