The National Pork Producers Council and the National Pork Board are urging all pork producers to take steps to prevent their pigs from contracting swine influenza.

NPPC and NPB are recommending that pork producers work with their herd veterinarian to reduce transmission of influenza viruses by:

• Giving influenza virus vaccinations to pigs.
• Giving seasonal influenza virus vaccinations to swine farm workers.
• Establishing, implementing and enforcing strict leave policies for workers who exhibit influenza-type symptoms.
• Implementing worker sick-leave policies that encourage employees to remain away from work when they are suffering from acute respiratory infections.
• Maintaining appropriate ventilation in the barns.
• Enforcing basic hygiene and biosecurity practices, including the use of personal protective gear.
• Preventing pig-to-bird contact by making buildings bird proof and treating water if it is supplied from an open body of water where birds and migratory fowl may be found.
• Restricting public access to barns
