So can a rat that gets cage cleaned everyday that doesn't have contact with outside rats get this can people spread this to rats as just a carrier while they do not themselves get it

Very unlikely to contract SDA in your case. Just be aware and careful and you should be fine.

Are SDA outbreaks always respiratory? I'm having a tough time getting an understanding of the symptoms to watch out for. I had a rat suddenly pass away and another very weak (and peeing on herself lot) out of nowhere within two days. Could this be SDA?

Wow. I’m not as much surprised by the virus as I am the intelligent post. Glad I joined the forum now, thank you for this well organized information!

How common is HPS and where in the United States is it most often found?
HPS is rare. Between 1993 and 2011, a total of 587 cases were reported in the United States. The majority of those cases were identified in the Southwest, from the states of New Mexico, California, Arizona and Colorado.
