GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — The Greensboro Health Department has issued a warning after two new rabies cases were reported in the county.

The department says a fox found in Whipporill Drive in Greensboro and a raccoon on Bentham Road in Gibsonville tested positive for rabies.

No humans were exposed to the animals, but they did have contact with three pets.

North Carolina law requires that all pets stay up to date on their rabies shots.

Guilford County Animal Control will host a number of low-cost rabies clinics next month.

The first is set for August 24 at Fire Station 28 in Gibsonville.
