Warren Co. Gets Second Rabies Alert in Two Weeks
The Lord Fairfax Health District has issued its second rabies alert in two weeks for Warren County.
The warning comes after another rabid raccoon was captured on Knob Lane, off of Route 735, on Monday, February 4th. The raccoon is known to have interacted with one dog, which is now on 45 day confinement. The area’s last rabies alert went out on January 28th, and also resulted in a dog being placed in confinement.
Health District officials are reminding citizens that rabies is 100% fatal once symptoms set in. Anyone who may have been exposed to saliva from a raccoon early this week in northwest Warren County is advised to seek care at the nearest emergency department immediately.
