The quarantine has been lifted from the equine hospital barns and some additional college-owned barns at Cornell University after temperatures and additional tests conducted on all horses indicated that Equine Herpes Virus-1 is not present.
Restricted access and additional biosecurity protocols remain in place at the Equine Research Park and the Annex, in response to a confirmed case of EHV-1.
The quarantine at the Research Park and the Annex will be in place for an additional week, a spokesperson said.
The quarantine was put in place in late March after two confirmed cases of the virus.
One involved a day-old foal admitted to the equine hospital on March 18, which died two days later of pneumonia. Tests confirmed EHV-1 on March 25.
A gelding being treated for a spinal injury left the equine hospital on March 22, but became ill upon returning home and tested positive for EHV-1 on March 30. The gelding is now recovering.
