During the ongoing surveillance activities being conducted by Alberta Pork in collaboration with the Alberta government, swine delta coronavirus (SDCV) has been detected at a pig-handling facility in Alberta. This environmental sample was not taken from a farm or a sick animal. There are no reported cases of SDCV in pigs in Alberta.

Alberta Pork is working close with Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) and the facility to investigate the situation and keep producers informed.

ARD is taking action to trace and contact others who may have been at this site. If there is anyone whose operation is thought to be at risk, they will be contacted directly.

Because SDCV is a new disease, there is not a lot of experience or research on it and how it spreads. As the disease is similar to PED, it is thought that prevention and management of the disease is similar to PED.

Other biosecurity measures, such as cleaning and disinfecting load-out areas and requiring clean boots and clothing for all barn visitors, should also be strictly enforced.
