AASV, National Pork Board and the National Pork Producers Council have been working diligently with State Animal Health Officials (SAHO) and the USDA to develop a response plan to direct actions in the event that the novel H1N1 Pandemic Influenza strain should be suspected or confirmed in a U.S. pig herd.

The SHAO would be notified of a suspected case of novel H1N1. Following notification of a suspect case, the SAHO would work confidentially with the veterinarian and producer to investigate and monitor the pigs. Samples will be submitted to the veterinary diagnostic laboratory for confirmation. If negative, the investigation is concluded and activities return to normal. If confirmed, the diagnostic lab would notify the SAHO and the attending veterinarian who would in turn notify the producer. Pig movements from the affected herd would be restricted until the clinical signs have resolved or as approved by the SAHO.
