.03 Quarantine.

Any premises upon which swine tuberculosis reactors are disclosed, or any premises to which slaughter swine with confirmed lesions of tuberculosis have been traced, or any premises where the Secretary has reason to suspect tuberculosis infection may exist or exposure to tuberculosis has taken place, shall be subject to immediate quarantine. Once quarantine is imposed, movement of swine on or off the premises shall be prohibited, except for slaughter purposes under written permit issued by the Secretary. This quarantine shall include any other species of animal or fowl that the Secretary determines is infected with or has been exposed to tuberculosis. The quarantine shall be released after it has been determined, by testing or other means, that tuberculosis no longer exists on the premises and any cleaning and disinfecting required by the Secretary has been completed.
