Patrons of the Vigo County Fair have been warned about the risk of swine flu at the Swine Barn and have been taking the necessary precautions.
Planners of the Vigo County 4-H Fair have put in place hand washing facilities with hand sanitizing stations. They have also put in place signs that warn parents not to allow children to bring in food as a proper precaution.
98 percent of the hogs in the swine barn have had a swine flu vaccine along with a proper pre-screening health check. Even so, you should still take the proper precautions before entering the swine barn.
All animals that didn’t pass the pre-screen when checked in were not allowed into the facility.
