  • Description:
    Some animals can be carriers of pathogens that cause diseases in humans. Animals at petting zoos and agricultural fairs (animal contact exhibits), such as cows, sheep, and goats, can be carriers of pathogens, including gastrointestinal pathogens, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli). Several E. coli outbreaks in the United States have been linked to animal contact exhibits in recent years. Disease outbreaks at animal contact exhibits can be prevented by washing hands properly with soap and water after contact with animals and by keeping food and beverages away from exhibits.

    To reduce disease outbreaks at animal contact exhibits, seven states have established hand sanitation laws for animal contact exhibits in their statutory or regulatory code. This menu assesses and provides examples of these laws, which include laws requiring hand sanitation stations and those that require related signage at the animal contact exhibits.
