CDFA is asking vector control agencies in Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties to institute additional biosecurity measures, including a 72 hour downtime between poultry farm visits and the wearing of protective booties. Additionally, they would like vector control agencies to notify the farmers before visiting so any additional biosecurity measures (e.g. disinfectant for shoes).
