Exotic Newcastle disease (END), confirmed on October 1, 2002 in the State of California, is now in the final phase of eradication. With the eradication of END in Nevada and Arizona, federal quarantines have been removed from the five affected counties, and the incident command posts in the two States have been closed. Similarly, with the eradication of END from the single flock in Texas, the incident command post in TX has been closed. Final eradication and surveillance activities are being planned. Although it appears that END is near total eradication in the United States, national END surveillance is ongoing throughout the US.
