More is known about the USDA’s reporting rule for porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. A USDA fact sheet says all cases of new PEDv and porcine delta coronavirus have to be reported to USDA or state animal health officials. Producers reporting either of these viruses are to work with a veterinarian to develop and implement a management plan to address the virus and prevent its spread.
The USDA says it will do its best to protect confidentiality of collected information and protect producer information from Freedom of Information Act requests to the fullest extent of the law.
Regulatory action may be taken if reporting requirements aren’t met.
