The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has removed all the quarantines on its avian influenza control zones in Ontario.

This includes areas of Oxford County, Ontario, which saw over 50,000 turkeys and 27,000 broilers affected. The restrictions have been removed upon completion of the 21-day waiting period that followed cleaning and disinfection with CFIA oversight.

A three-month enhanced surveillance period following the cleaning and disinfection of all the areas is now required by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) before a zone will recover its avian influenza-free status.
