Equine virus outbreak hasn't hit Kansas

Kansas authorities say that they have found no cases of Equine Herpes Virus in Kansas, despite reports in other states.

The virus has led to the deaths of several horses across the country and the cancellation of a major horse-related event. Colorado currently has six confirmed cases.

Horse owners planning on traveling to Colorado, must have a certificate of veterinary inspection, recorded temperature, current Coggins test and an entry permit.

A Kansas horse was at the Ogden, Utah, event where the virus is thought to have originated, but the horse did not return to Kansas. It is under quarantine outside of Lincoln, Neb.

The virus is not transmissible to humans.
