People who raise animals are not the only ones who need to be concerned about diseases that can easily spread between humans and animals. These types of diseases, called zoonotic diseases, are caused by germs that spread between people and animals, and they can impact anyone who encounters animals. These diseases are quite common but with proper prevention and hygiene the risk of transmission is low. The best way to prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases is by having and using a plan that reduces the risk of disease transmission, known as biosecurity. This plan is an important step to making sure people and animals remain healthy.

Michigan State University Extension has partnered with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to create multiple resources designed to help educate youth and the general public on how to prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases. Anyone that works with events or locations that have a public/people and animal interface will benefit from the developed resources and will be able to utilize them at their operations or exhibitions.

These resources will be highlighted on an informational zoom webinar on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021 from 1-2 p.m. While there is no cost to participate, attendees must register in order to receive access to the necessary connection link. This educational event will feature speakers from MSU Extension and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and will include information on planning materials and signage that can be used to prevent zoonotic disease outbreaks, social media materials that promote healthy interaction with animals, and educational materials to educate youth in strategies can be used to bring awareness around the issue of the spread of zoonotic diseases.
