The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) requiring enhanced biosecurity (declared at 17:00 on 11 November 2020) remains in force across the whole of England. But following a reduction in the risk of avian influenza to both wild and kept birds to ‘medium’. Wednesday 31st March 2021 will be the last day poultry and other captive birds will need to be housed as a requirement of the AIPZ.
Housing restrictions end at 23:59 on the 31st March 2021. All other biosecurity measures in the AIPZ remain in force until further notice and are a legal requirement for all bird keepers in England (whether they have pet birds, commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock).
