Early awareness of an infectious disease outbreak is critical and can prevent potential economic harm and loss of use. The EDCC has made it easier to stay aware of confirmed outbreaks across North America. The outbreaks are posted in real time on the Equine Disease communication (EDCC) Facebook and Twitter pages. “like” the EDCC on Facebook at www.facebook.com/EquineDiseaseCC and follow @equinediseaseCC on Twitter. You can also sign up through www.equinediseasecc.org to be notified by email when an infectious disease outbreak is confirmed or an update to a previously reported outbreak is available.
