Dear Desert Horse Park community,
We submitted 10 samples to the CDFA for testing today. These samples were collected over the last three days at the horse park.
There were eight samples that were for horses that had previously tested positive. Six of these horses were seeking their first negative test. Four of them tested negative and two remain positive. The four that tested negative will be tested again in seven days. Two horses were being tested for their second negative. Both tested negative and will be released from isolation tonight.
One sample was for a horse that previously tested negative and was being retested to confirm the negative. This horse tested negative again and is now cleared.
One sample was for the one horse on Saturday that had its first reported elevated temperature. This horse tested negative and will be retested soon for a confirmation test.
We will have a town hall tomorrow at 11 am in VIP to discuss recent trends and the UC Davis research team that will be at the horse park on Thursday and Friday beginning their study.
