Hillsborough County officials will hold a news conference Wednesday to discuss reports of parvovirus showing up at the county's animal shelter on Falkenburg Road in Brandon. The news conference will take place at 2 p.m. in a 26th floor meeting room at County Center, at 601 E Kennedy Blvd. in downtown Tampa.

Commissioners have a budget reconciliation workshop scheduled to run all day Wednesday, but which is not likely to run past noon.

County Communications Director Lori Hudson said officials will discuss what they know about what they are characterizing as isolated incidences of parvo and what they are doing to prevent its spread. She said they will be turning to independent outside assistance to help them manage a problem that is being taken "very seriously."
