Douglass today stated that his laboratory has found two E.I.A. {Swamp fever} reactors in Calhoun County and a Cabell County horse is positive on the first test. Douglass said, "I am becoming convinced that the reactors may be found in most areas of the Mountain State." Douglass continued, "It becomes evident that it is extremely important that horse owners not congregate other than horses which have a valid Coggins" certificate." Douglass con- cluded by saying, "Horses participat- ing in trail rides should also have a negative Coggins' test. All horses without a negative test should be regarded as possible carriers."
