It also applies to importation of all birds from states in which a state or federal quarantined area due to Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease exists.

(1) Areas under restriction. The emergency quarantine includes all areas of any state in which a state or federal quarantine for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease exists.
(2) Items under restriction, except as specifically exempted in (3)(b) and (4)(b) below, include birds, poultry, poultry products, poultry waste, or vehicles, equipment or materials of any type that could transmit Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease. Included in the restriction are vehicles that make deliveries of live birds, feed, or equipment to poultry operations of any sort in quarantined areas and then travel within or into the state of Oregon.
(3)
(a) Except as exempted in (b) below, no live or dead birds, poultry, poultry products, poultry waste, or vehicles, equipment or materials of any type that could transmit Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease may be removed from an area under quarantine for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease within Oregon or into Oregon from areas under quarantine in other states.
(b) From areas under state or federal quarantine for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease, table eggs which have fulfilled all stipulations of USDA Policies on Movement of Table Eggs out of quarantined areas may be considered for importation into Oregon. If so considered, they will be subject to protocols established by the State Veterinarian.
(4)
(a) Except as exempted in (b) no equipment used for the processing of eggs or for the housing, feeding, watering, handling, or otherwise caring for birds of any type may be removed from an area under quarantine for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Disease within Oregon or into Oregon from areas under quarantine in other states.
