Information for swine exhibitors at N.C. agricultural fairs

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is concerned about a new flu virus that has been found in U.S. pigs and that has infected people, too. The virus is called "H3N2v" when it infects people. Most cases have happened in people exhibiting pigs at fairs. To date, there have been no cases reported in North Carolina, but state officials are encouraging people who exhibit swine at fairs in the state to follow recommendations issued by the CDC, 4-H and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
