  • Three in Hood County;
  • One in Johnson County;
  • One in Shackelford County;

The TAHC has place the newly confirmed premises under quarantine. Regulatory and authorized veterinarians will monitor the affected horses until the premises are eligible for quarantine release 14 days after clinical VSV signs are observed.

To date, 20 premises in 12 Texas counties have confirmed cases of VSV. Of those premises, two have been released from quarantine. Currently affected counties include Bastrop, Coleman, Hays, Hood, Johnson, Shackelford, Taylor, Tom Green, Val Verde, and Wichita counties
