The Lord Fairfax Health District has issued a rabies warning for Front Royal.

The warning is due to the discovery of a raccoon with rabies on April 17th near the Royal Arms Apartments.

The raccoon is no longer a threat to the area but if you believe that you, your children, or a pet came in contact with that raccoon, they should call the Warren County Health Department immediately.

Any bite, scratch, or lick from an animal with rabies can lead to exposure.

The health department also issued a reminder to stay away from wild animals and keep your pet’s vaccines up to date.
