  • Description:
    To assess the implications of the WN virus introduction into the U.S. and to develop a comprehensive national response plan, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) co-sponsored a meeting of arbovirologists, epidemiologists, laboratorians, vector-control specialists, wildlife biologists, and state and local health and agriculture officials in Fort Collins, Colorado, on November 8-9, 1999. As an outgrowth of this meeting, recommendations for surveillance, prevention and control of WN virus in the U.S. were developed, published and used in 2000 by federal, state and local public health officials. A second national meeting, co-sponsored by CDC, the Association of Public Health Laboratories and other federal and state organizations was held in Charlotte, North Carolina, on January 31-February 4, 2001, to review year 2000 WN virus activity, and evaluate the outcomes of recommended surveillance, prevention and control activities. Sessions were organized to review each major guideline topic. Each session was comprised of summary talks followed by a panel discussion of experts from around the U.S. Each topic-oriented discussion group met to propose modifications to their guideline topic. A copy of the 2001 meeting agenda and participant list are attached to this report as Appendix A. Based on the results of this second meeting, modified Guidelines were formulated.
