Quarantine order issued to stop movement of Oahu pigs

The Hawaii Department of Agriculture has issued a quarantine order stopping the movement of pigs on Oahu after an outbreak of a serious swine disease, Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus, or PEDv, was confirmed on a farm in Waianae Valley. PEDv causes significant sickness in swine and causes high mortality in piglets. The virus only affects pigs and does not pose a risk to humans or pets. It is not a food safety concern.
