This is a view of the template showing the Premises Classification section of an Outbreak Surveillance Plan. This section of a surveillance plan typically requires little additional writing because most of the text for this section is already provided. Instructions are in green and should be deleted from the final draft.
There are six [If strategic vaccination is used, there will be a seventh premises classification, Vaccinated Premises (VP)] premises classifications that will be used during this surveillance effort. The following definitions will be applied to classify premises.
Infected Premises (IP) - Premises where presumptive positive case or confirmed positive case exists based on laboratory results, compatible clinical signs, case definition, and international standards.
Contact Premises (CP) - Premises with susceptible animals that have been exposed to the foreign animal disease (FAD) agent, either directly or indirectly, including but not limited to animals, animal products, fomites, or people from an IP. Contiguous premises in close proximity to an IP may also be classified as a CP. If a CP is outside the Control Area, it must be surrounded by a Buffer Zone until disposition of the CP is determined.
Suspect Premises (SP) - Premises under investigation due to the presence of susceptible animals reported to have clinical signs compatible with the FAD. This is intended to be a short-term premises designation. Suspect premises are located in the Infected Zone, Buffer Zone, Surveillance Zone, or Vaccination Zone.
At-Risk Premises (ARP) - Premises located in theControl Area with susceptible animals, but none have clinical signs compatible with the FAD. Premises objectively demonstrates that it is not an Infected Premises, Contact Premises, or Suspect Premises. ARP seek to move susceptible animals or products within the Control Area by permit. Only At-Risk Premises are eligible to become Monitored Premises.
Monitored Premises (MP) - Premises located in the Control Area that objectively demonstrates it is not an Infected Premises, Contact Premises, or Suspect Premises. Only at-Risk Premsies are eligible to become Montiored Premises. Monitored Premises meet a set of defined criteria in seeking to move suceptible animals or products out of the Control Area by permit.
Free Premises (FP) - Premises outside of the Control Area and and not a Contact or Suspect Premises. A FP can be located within the Surveillance Zone or elsewhere in the Free Area.
[Optional] Vaccinated Premises (VP) - Premises where emergency vaccination has been performed. This is a secondary premises designation. The primary premises designation will be IP, CP, ARP, MP if located in the Control Area, or FP if located in the Free area. Vaccinated Premises may be located in the Containment Vaccination Zone, typically within the Control Area, or in the Protection Vaccination Zone, typically outside the Control Area.
