FRANKLIN CO., OH (WCMH) — The Franklin County Fair Board members met to discuss its plan to deal with any sign of swine flu.
This comes just one day after two pigs at the Clinton County Fair in southwest Ohio tested positive for the disease.
Those rules will be posted throughout the livestock barn.
- Wash and/or sanitize hands thoroughly and often, particularly after handling animals and always before eating meals or touching your mouth
- No food or drink is allowed in the livestock barns
- No strollers, sippy cups or pacifiers are allowed in the livestock barns
Fleshman added hog owners also have a hand in helping prevent any illnesses from spreading.
“Keeping track of their animals. Same thing they do every year.”
In additional to the hog owners paying attention there will be a veterinarian on hand all week helping check on the animals.
