Draft Version of Letter to Teacher of Visiting School Group
We appreciate your interest in visiting an animal rearing facility at Utah State University and look forward to accommodating your group of children. Farm animals, especially young ones, are interesting and fun to observe. However, some precautions are advised during the visit of your group.
Please instruct the attending visitors that intestinal infections may be transmitted from young farm animals to children, the elderly, and persons with compromised immune systems. This may occur even though the animals appear entirely healthy. We request that all who attend follow the guidelines below during their visit.
If you have any questions or concerns about the precautions listed above, please contact us prior to your visit.
