Avian Influenza (BIRD FLU)


Avian Influenza, also known as bird flu, is a disease in wild birds. It can be passed from wild birds to domestic poultry such as chickens, roosters ducks, geese, other birds and other animals through feces (droppings) and body fluids. People who have very close contact with infected birds can get avian influenza. The current risk to the public in California from the H5N1 bird flu outbreak in wild birds, poultry, wild mammals, and livestock is considered low. The situation is ongoing and evolving.
