Due to the economic harm that it could cause to the pork industry if it spreads to Alberta, effective May 20, 2014, SDCV in swine is a reportable disease in the Province of Alberta.

As of May 20, 2014, all known or suspect cases of SDCV occurring in Alberta should be reported to the Chief Provincial Veterinarian (CPV) within 24 hours.

Making SDCV a reportable disease will help minimize the risk of the disease becoming established in Alberta. The Alberta response will be guided by the Alberta Swine Enteric Corona Virus Disease Control Plan. In accordance with this plan, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) will provide support to the industry by:

  • Testing samples for SDCV at our lab
  • Coordinating the Alberta response for the first few cases, if SDCV is found in the province
  • Communicating with stakeholders
  • Working with local veterinarians to provide advice on implementation of biosecurity and disease control measures for affected premises.
