HPAI Coordination & Operations Plan

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) (also known as avian flu or bird flu) is a highly contagious avian disease that is carried and spread by water fowl and wild birds.

While no cases have been confirmed in Massachusetts, the threat of this virus poses a serious risk to the Commonwealth, and could have significant impacts to the State’s economy and bird populations. This plan outlines the framework guiding the Commonwealth’s response to a positive case of HPAI if one presents itself.
