Thursday we told you about the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory's confirmation of the first case of Equine Herpes Virus in the state of Wyoming. The horse is from Johnson County and is currently under quarantine.

With a continuous stream of events involving horses at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds scheduled for the next couple of months, will this latest case change anything at the Fairgrounds?

Facilities Director Melissa Albrecht says on their end it's still business as usual.

Albrecht said that the State has not required them to do anything out of the ordinary at this time, other than get the word out about the virus and that horse owners keep a close eye on their animals and practice good sanitation.
