Get all the Facts about Bird Flu on Cape Cod

*UPDATE: There has been one confirmed human case of Avian Influenza in the United States, in Colorado. Read more. (April 2022)

Bird Flu has been found on Cape Cod and while it does not pose an immediate health threat to people it does spread easily among wild birds, poultry, and domestic birds. We’ve put together a fact sheet to answer your questions and be a useful guide to keep wild and domestic birds safe from the spread of this disease. Be sure to call us if you see sick or injured birds, and follow safety guidelines if you will be handling birds.

If you find a sick or injured bird please contact our helpline: 508-240-2255.
