What Happens When An Area Is Quarantined?

Whenever quarantine has been declared, the owner or caretaker of an animal in the quarantine area shall confine the animal on the premises of the owner; or in a suitable place for the impounding and care of animals, which place shall be subject to approval of the state veterinarian. In addition, a quarantine order may specify the circumstances and conditions under which owners may remove animals from the owner's premises or an impoundment facility.
