Latest PRCA News ON COVID-19

COVID-19 and Biosecurity

by SCOTT DORENKAMP | Mar 26, 2020

PRCA Livestock Program & Government Relations Manager

Updated March 26, 2020 

Dear PRCA Members:

The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) based in Lexington, Kentucky has released information including a fact sheet regarding the COVID-19 virus and equine coronavirus (ECoV).  The PRCA works with and supports the EDCC as they provide timely warnings about outbreaks of equine sicknesses, quarantines, and lifting of quarantines.  The PRCA continues to monitor these situations and updates the membership of any that will affect it.

The COVID-19 virus and the ECoV virus are distinct viruses and there exists no evidence that either is transmitted from human to equine or vice versa.  The general equine strain is spread through infected fecal matter that is ingested by other equines.  Bio-security prevention measures include isolation of any infected equine until a fecal sample confirms the equine tests negative.  Wash and disinfect all tack, buckets, and trailers to lower the risk of transmission.

At the present time, there is no evidence that equines can be infected by the COVID-19 virus.  There is the possibility that an equine as well as all tack, saddles, blankets, and buckets could carry the COVID-19 virus the same as a doorknob.  Any of the aforementioned items with which an infected/suspected human host has come in contact should be properly washed and sanitized.  Standard biosecurity should be used, including frequent hand washing, disinfecting tack by washing with soap, regular household cleaning sprays or wipes.  If washing your hands is not possible, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

The EDCC encourages horse owners to visit the COVID-19 resource page at for more information.  Members can also visit the EDCC website at

The PRCA continues to monitor the situation and will update the membership as new information becomes available.  Meanwhile, everyone stay safe and we look forward to resuming the rodeo season.
