Health District Warns of Rabies Risk in Front Royal
The Lord Fairfax Health District is warning the public of another rabies risk in Front Royal.
On June 14, 2019, a fight between a raccoon and a dog in the 500 block of Warren Avenue ended in the raccoon’s death; the animal was subsequently tested, and found to have had rabies. Health District Director Dr. Colin Green said that, while they are not aware of any contact between this raccoon and humans, any person or domestic animal that has come in contact with a raccoon in that part of Front Royal in the last two weeks should be evaluated. Rabies is fatal to both animals and humans once symptoms begin.
