An attending veterinarian reported to the Equine Disease Communication Center on January 3, 2018, that a quarantine for strangles has been established at a facility in Los Angeles County, California. 

Last week two febrile horses were cultured for Streptococcus equi. One horse tested positive and one negative on nasal swab. Based on the results, a quarantine has been established at the facility by Los Angeles County and the horses that tested positive are isolated from the general population.

The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) works to protect horses and the horse industry from the threat of infectious diseases in North America. The communication system is designed to seek and report real time information about disease outbreaks similar to how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerts the human population about diseases in people.
