A strain of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N2 has appeared in poultry flocks in the U.S. including states surrounding Illinois (Kentucky, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri). At this time no birds in flocks in Illinois have been diagnosed with this virus. However, if citizens want to know what to do if they see die-offs of poultry or wild birds they can direct questions to the Illinois department of agriculture (217-782-4944) or USDA (217-547-6030).
