Acute Communicable Disease Control
Avian Flu
Note to all healthcare professionals:

If you suspect that a patient is infected with Avian Influenza, immediately call Acute Communicable Disease Control to assist with diagnosis and implementation of infection control.

  • (213) 240-7941 (7:30AM-5:00PM, Mon-Fri)
  • (213) 974-1234 (After Hours, Emergency Operator)
Key Points:
  • We are monitoring the situation with highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) infections among domestic bird populations
  • The persons at highest risk of infection are those who work with or live in close proximity to infected birds
  • LA County Public Health is working closely with CDPH and CDC to identify any person who has been exposed to an infected flock, and to follow that person to ensure that they get appropriate testing if they develop symptoms
  • At the moment, the risk to the general public from HPAI is low because there is no evidence that the infection spreads from one person to another
