On Nov. 21 the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture (ODA) updated the status of Remington Park racetrack in Oklahoma County following the initial confirmation of a horse there testing positive for equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1). Two additional horses have tested positive: one in the index case’s barn, and one in another barn where 100 more horses were exposed.

Both new cases were positive on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing, although both were clinically normal and without fever. The new barn has also been quarantined.
