OLYMPIA — The state Department of Agriculture imposed a poultry quarantine Thursday in part of Okanogan County after avian flu was discovered in turkeys and pheasants.
The quarantine restricts the movement of eggs and poultry within six miles of the site where the flu was detected in the game birds.
A quarantine also is in effect in Clallam County but a quarantine in parts of Benton and Franklin counties was lifted Tuesday.
There is no immediate threat to people. Officials are trying to prevent avian flu from reaching commercial producers.
