Saskatchewan is extending an order limiting the co-mingling of poultry into June, due to an ongoing outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).

The order, enacted by the province’s Chief Veterinary Officer, prohibits the movement of birds to shows, auctions, agricultural fairs and any other events where they would be brought together from multiple locations.

The order was set to expire on May 14, but will continue until at least June 14.
