The California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) provided a
status update on [29 Aug 2018] on the virulent Newcastle disease (VND)
surveillance project in southern California, which is now in its 4th
month.

CDFA said the disease has been detected at a total of 117 properties
in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Ventura counties in
California.

According to CDFA, as of [26 Aug 2018]:
- 96 880 properties have been surveyed;
- 2679 properties have been placed under quarantine;
- 397 properties have been released from quarantine;
- 671 (combined total) farmers markets, feed stores, pet stores, egg
vendors and private veterinary practices were visited by VND outreach
teams;
- Zero VND detections have been found at commercial poultry
operations;
- 40 commercial operations in southern California are conducting
surveillance testing, and
- 176 state and federal personnel are working on this incident.

As this project continues, bird owners everywhere, and especially in
southern California, are urged to practice strict biosecurity
measures. In southern California, CDFA said these measures include:

1. Do not move birds.
2. Do not bring new birds to the property.
3. Do not let people with birds come into contact with your birds.

VND mostly travels when infected poultry are transported or on the
hands and feet of people that came into contact with infected poultry
or their droppings, CDFA said.

CDFA has more information on its VND webpage.

[According to the CDFA website :
<https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/ahfss/Animal_Health/Newcastle_Disease_Info.html>

"Virulent Newcastle disease (VND), formerly known as exotic Newcastle
disease, is a serious, highly contagious viral disease that can affect
poultry and other birds. In rare cases, humans that have exposure to
infected birds may get eye inflammation or mild fever-like symptoms.
These signs generally resolve without treatment, however, medical care
should be sought if signs persist. Infection is easily prevented by
using standard personal protective equipment. Virulent Newcastle
disease is not a food safety concern. No human cases of Newcastle
disease have ever occurred from eating poultry products. Properly
cooked poultry products are safe to eat.

"The virus is found in respiratory discharges and feces and may cause
high rates of sickness and death in susceptible birds. For poultry,
chickens are most susceptible and ducks and geese are the least
susceptible. Mortality rates for Psittacine birds (parrots) can range
from zero up to 75 percent. Certain parrots, especially Amazon
parrots, can shed VND virus intermittently in excess of one year.
Other birds may be infected, but may not show any symptoms and may
still be able to spread the disease. Once VND is introduced into
domestic avian populations, subsequent spread is normally caused by
domestic bird-to-bird contact or through contact with contaminated
people, feed or equipment. Other types of Newcastle disease known as
lentogenic and mesogenic are less virulent and may cause mild symptoms
or none at all.

"There is no effective cure for virulent Newcastle disease. It is
important that all commercial and non-commercial poultry owners
maintain effective barriers to mitigate the risk of VND. Biosecurity
tips for commercial poultry owners can be found at
<https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/ahfss/Animal_Health/BioSpecies/CommercialPoultryBiosecurity.html>.

"For Backyard and non-commercial poultry owners, biosecurity tips can
be found at
<https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/ahfss/Animal_Health/BioSpecies/BioPoultry.html>."

All bird owners should look at the recommended biosecurity information
on these pages. Biosecurity of your flock, regardless of size is
hugely important to keeping your birds healthy. - Mod.TG
