Veterinarians with the Florida Department of Agriculture have placed a Jonesville-area equine farm under a 28-day quarantine after two horses from the farm that had to be euthanized tested positive for Equine Herpesvirus-1. The cases are not associated with a growing EHV-1 outbreak in the western U.S. and Canada that likely originated at a horse event in Utah. Veterinarians in unaffected states including Wyoming, Nevada and Texas remain on alert and are taking precautions to prevent the spread of the disease.
