1. Minnesota State Perspective on HPAI Stacey Schwabenlander, DVM, MPH, DACVPM Senior Veterinarian

2. It Begins: March 5, 2015 • USDA confirms H5N2 HPAI in Pope County, MN – Commercial turkeys – No other commercial poultry in control area – 38 backyard flocks – State IMT (BAH and MDA) stood up

3. HPAI in Minnesota 110

4. HPAI in Minnesota • 5,236 square miles in 10 km control areas • 1,912 premises in control area

5. HPAI in Minnesota

6. Continuity of Business • Permit required when Control Area established • Initially just commercial premises • Later permitted movement of backyard birds to slaughter and eggs for distribution • Permits needed to move into/out of/within a Control Area

7. EMRS2 for permitting • All premises need a PIN • To generate permits from EMRS2 – need trained staff • Permit requires approval at both ends of permit in EMRS • Template used to merge data from EMRS2 into a permitted movement document

8. March 29, 2015 – July 28, 2015* *All response zones released Staff time – Permitted Movements • 5,048 hours over 17.5 weeks – 288 hours/week ~ 7 FTEs – 931 permits & 3,074 movements (excluding feed, product) – Feed: 553 permits & 5,587 movements • Product: 1,399 permits & 4,628 movements – Entered by USDA staff

9. Challenges – Poultry locations

10. Challenges • Verification of permit conditions • Pre-movement isolation of birds to slaughter • Industry signature on permits • Verification of testing requirements - Completed – Coordination of sample courier, VDL testing, and results

11. Solutions • Dedicated email inbox, telephone lines • Streamlined permit request process • Common workspace • Determine the time needed for test results – Set-up VDL cut-offs for movement sample testing – Set-up courier deadlines

12. 2015 Solution – Interactive Map

13. HPAI Preparedness • Biosecurity is critical

14. HPAI Preparedness • What didn’t work in 2015 – Epi questionnaire – Every day PCR testing for movement – Resources spent on low risk products – Late night testing and permitting – Limiting map access to responders

15. HPAI Preparedness 2016 Solution – Interactive Map • Deliver near real-time interactive map with several HPAI-related data layers • Include refined security – Ability to include external partners – Ability to limit access to layers based on user type – 4 groups: HPAI IMT; Industry Partners; Emergency response partners; public • Develop with “responsive design” – Display better on different devices (e.g., tablet/phone)

16. HPAI Preparedness 2016 Solution – Interactive Map • Map functionality – Navigation (zoom, pan, etc) – Toggle layers on/off – Click on map to get more info – Measure tool – Base maps and aerial photography – Include date of last update of data – Export spreadsheet of commercial premises insides 10 km zones

17. HPAI Preparedness 2016 Solution – Interactive Map

18. HPAI Preparedness 2016 Solution – Interactive Map

19. HPAI Preparedness 2016 Solution – Interactive Map

20. HPAI Preparedness 2016 Solution – Interactive Map

21. HPAI Preparedness • What to consider next time? – Set lab test schedules to manage work load over extended period of time – Sample protocols to include 2 PCR tests on day before movement – Alternative procedures for low risk movements – Site management plan for procedures to follow to reduce risk in a Control Area

22. HPAI Preparedness If HPAI rears it’s ugly head in the future we are ready: • We have an ICP ready to go with supplies for about 2 months. • ICS structure has been developed with dedicated personnel assigned. • Case Managers, appraisers and depopulation contract teams have been designated. • Laboratory support has been designated. • Lines of communication have been established between industry, response personnel and laboratory support. • The plan is to have a flock put down within 24 hours of a presumptive positive Dx and composting (disposal) started the next day.
