According to Maryland State Veterinarian Dr. Michael Radebaugh, the quarantine of the Montgomery County Farm due to a case of Equine Infectious Anemia has been lifted as of Friday, September 14. “No other horses on the property have tested positive for EIA since the 60-day hold order was first put in place, so it is now business as usual,” Dr. Radebaugh stated. He added that 271 horses have been tested in Maryland and Virginia during the investigation and no other horses have tested positive for EIA. “We still have some loose ends to tie up and a few more horses to test but everything is fine,” he said.

One horse at the Montgomery County Farm tested positive for EIA on July 9, which was the start of the mandatory hold order. To read the full story of this case, click here:
