** RABIES NOTICE **
On November 7, 2020, a fox in the area of Old Mendham Road and Valley View Road was found to be carrying the Rabies Virus.
If you or your pet had any contact with this animal, please contact the Health Department at 973-326-7390, or your physician.
Rabies is a preventable, fatal disease found in the saliva of infected domestic and wild animals. Common carriers of the virus are raccoons, skunks, foxes, woodchucks, bats, and feral (stray) cats. You are advised to stay away from wild animals and animals that you do not know. DO NOT FEED STRAY ANIMALS. Do not make pets of wild animals. Be certain that your cat or dog is properly vaccinated and up to date on rabies vaccinations.
If you or your pet are exposed (either bitten or scratched) by any suspected animal, act promptly. Immediately wash the bite wound with soap and water, and call your doctor and the Health Department. If your pet is exposed, contact the Health Department and your Veterinarian.
