HPAI found in dairy cows in seventh state (NC)

Authorities say bird flu poses a low risk to human health, although this is the first time it has been found in U.S. cattle.

Milk Tests Suggest Bird Flu Outbreak Has Spread Widely

"Bird flu has been confirmed in 33 dairy herds in eight states, officials say, but the results of a nationwide Food and Drug Administration analysis suggest the virus is far more widespread. In an update Thursday, the agency said inactive fragments of the virus were found in one in five samples of retail milk in the nationally representative study"

TLDR;  This and other articles say that the dairy workers in TX (other infected states?) have often refused to be tested.  Health records from the regions with bovine bird flu show uptick in respiratory problems.  The CDC is monitoring 40+ individuals who may be infected.
