I hope this email finds everyone safe and healthy during this difficult period. As always, clear communication is critical during periods of uncertainty.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for many horse owners. To have a central source for accurate information, the Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) published a Coronavirus resource page on its website http://equinediseasecc.org/coronavirus-resources featuring items to help horse owners keep their horses healthy during this pandemic.
While information about the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly changing, the EDCC is receiving questions and concerns from owners about the safety of their horses. In order to help mitigate and protect horses from the spread of disease, the EDCC Coronavirus resource page will be updated as necessary to reflect the current information.
Additionally, the EDCC’s Coronavirus page features fact sheets to help owners explain the differences between equine coronavirus (ECoV) and COVID-19 as well as needed tools to stay up to date on the latest information. Users will be able to download and print off fact sheets and educational materials that can be posted in barns and facilities.
As always, we thank you for the continued support of the EDCC and our efforts. EDCC is fully operational during these trying times and is here to support you. Let us know if we can be of help in the days ahead.
With best wishes,
Nathaniel A. White II
Director, Equine Disease Communication Center
