The new federal regulations also affect the interstate movement of horses and poultry; however, no change to current movement requirements is anticipated for either group. Generally, horses moving interstate to and from Maryland are now required – and will continue to be required – to carry an ICVI. Horses entering Maryland from Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or Virginia to attend an event for less than 72 hours, or to a Maryland exhibition, are exempt from the ICVI requirement and may enter with a current Equine Infectious Anemia Test Report. Maryland horses entering another state must meet the requirements of that state.
Producers or veterinarians who have questions about the rule should contact MDA Animal Health Inspectors Dave Shinham or Melissa Foster at 410-841-5810 or send email to
