    In January 2016, highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) A(H7N8) virus and low pathogenicity avian influenza (LPAI) A(H7N8) virus were detected in commercial turkey flocks in Dubois County, Indiana. The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and the Dubois County Health Department (DCHD) coordinated the public health response to this outbreak, which was the first detection of HPAI A(H7N8) in any species (1).
    On January 15, 2016, ISDH was notified by the Indiana State Board of Animal Health that HPAI A(H7N8) virus had been confirmed in a commercial turkey flock in Dubois County, Indiana. In accordance with USDA guidelines (2), the State Board of Animal Health promptly began active surveillance for HPAI in commercial poultry flocks within a radius of 6.2 miles (10 km) of the infected premises.
