Rabies Alert Information for Volusia County

Volusiacounty

June 11, 2021

The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County (DOH-Volusia) issued a rabies alert for the South-Eastern portions of Port Orange, FL. This is in response to a cat that tested positive for rabies June 8, 2021.

All residents and visitors in Volusia County should be aware that rabies is present in the wild animal population and domestic animals are at risk if not vaccinated. The public is asked to maintain a heightened awareness that rabies is active in Volusia County. Alerts are designed to increase awareness to the public, but they should not give a false sense of security to areas that have not been named as under an alert.

The recent rabies alert is for 60 days. The center of the rabies alert is at Briarwood Mobile Estates in Port Orange and includes the following boundaries that include parts of Port Orange, Allendale and Harbor Oaks:

  1. Eastern Boundary, Halifax River water body
  2. Northern Boundary, Oak Street
  3. Southern Boundary, Rose Bay water body
  4. Western Boundary, Country Lane and Taylor Road East of Country Lane

An animal with rabies could infect other wild or domestic animals that have not been vaccinated against rabies. All domestic animals should be vaccinated against rabies and all wildlife contact should be avoided, particularly raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes. Rabies is a disease of the nervous system and is fatal to warm blooded animals and humans. The only treatment for human exposure to rabies is rabies specific immune globulin and rabies immunization. Appropriate treatment started soon after the exposure will protect an exposed person from the disease.

Residents and visitors are advised to take the following precautions:

  • Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets.
  • Keep your pets under direct supervision so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and your animal services division by calling Volusia County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line at 386-248-1777.
  • Call your local animal control agency to remove any stray animals from your neighborhood.
  • Do not handle, feed, or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans or litter.
  • Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home.
  • Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly.
  • Prevent bats from entering living quarters or occupied spaces in homes, churches, schools, and other similar areas, where they might come in contact with people and pets.
  • Persons who have been bitten or scratched by wild or domestic animals should seek medical attention and report the injury to the Florida Department of Health in Volusia County at 386-274-0634.
