Is it safe to visit live markets and farms in areas where human cases have been recorded?

When visiting live markets:

  • Avoid direct contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals.

If you live on a farm and raise animals for food, such as pigs and poultry:

  • Be sure to keep children away from sick and dead animals.
  • Keep animal species separated as much as possible.
  • Report immediately to local authorities any cases of sick and dead animals. Sick or dead animals should not be butchered and prepared for food.
