Mandatory quarantine at corrals scheduled to end Tuesday

The mandatory quarantine at the Boulder City Horseman’s Association will end Tuesday, Nov. 12, according to an announcement on the group’s official Facebook page.

The presence of equine herpesvirus at the corrals was confirmed Oct. 23 and, as of Monday, Nov. 4, no new cases were confirmed. The end date could change if any new cases of EHV1 are confirmed.

EHV1 is highly contagious and presents like the flu, according to BCHA President Scott Pastore.

Interim state veterinarian for the Department of Agriculture Dr. Richard Simmonds, said the treatment for EHV1 is palliative and once a horse has it, it’s just a matter of time before the disease runs its course. After exposure, it can take up to 14 days for the symptoms to present themselves.

Pastore said new procedures are being implemented at the corrals to prevent the spread of EHV1 in the future.

A voluntary quarantine will remain in place at the corrals until Nov. 18.
