The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture was notified today that a Standardbred horse at The Meadows Racetrack in Washington, Pennsylvania, had shown clinical signs consistent with EHM. The horse has tested positive for EHV-1 and is currently under medical treatment. 

Two barns at The Meadows are currently under quarantine due to a horse that moved earlier from the original exposed barn. This horse causing the second barn’s movement restriction is not showing clinical signs. 

A daily monitoring period for clinical signs in the remaining exposed, asymptomatic horses is ongoing. Updates will be posted as they become available.

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.
