WISH has received a number of queries concerning the appropriate PPE and precautions to be observed whilst collecting bird carcasses as part of cleansing in streets, parks and public areas.

Further to the discussion that took place about this issue at the last WISH SG monthly call, and following on from discussions and consultations which WISH have undertaken with the HSE and others we have agreed and are now publishing the attached position statement on this issue.

This statement will be kept under review during the current Avian Flu outbreak and will be changed should the circumstance so require.

WISH Avian Flu Position Statement V1 – 19 Dec 2022
