EQUIPMENT OPERATORS SPENT THE DAY PLOWING
SECONDARY ROADS IN SOUTHWESTERN VIRGINIA


SALEM – Snow plow operators with the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Salem District plowed secondary roads (those numbered 600 and above) and neighborhood streets Sunday in areas where snow accumulated overnight. Their efforts were focused mostly on secondary roads in Floyd, Carroll, Giles, Montgomery, Patrick and Pulaski counties.
Conditions have improved on most secondary roads and they are in minor condition, (mostly clear with isolated slick spots) but snow plow drivers will continue to monitor conditions overnight as lower temperatures may cause roads to freeze and become icy.
As of 5:30 p.m., Interstate 77, I-81 and I-581 are clear. Drivers should use caution at bridges and ramps and watch for slick spots overnight.
All major roads (those numbered 1-599) are clear with the possibility of slick spots forming in cooler areas in higher elevations overnight.
Some secondary roads, particularly in cooler spots in the New River Valley, and in higher elevations, may still have some icy spots and snow on the roadway. Drivers should use caution. Snow plow operators will monitor conditions overnight in these locations.
For the latest road conditions, motorists can dial 511 or visit www.511Virginia.org

RABID HORSE CONFIRMED IN PATRICK COUNTY

(STUART, Va.) – A horse from southern Patrick County near Route 8 and the North Carolina state line has tested positive for rabies. This is the first confirmed rabid animal in Patrick County in 2012.

Rabies continues to be present throughout Virginia. In Patrick County, five animals tested positive for rabies in 2011 (two skunks, one each fox, raccoon and cat) and six animals tested positive for rabies in 2010 (three foxes, one each raccoon, bat and skunk). Since 2006, the number of confirmed animal rabies cases has ranged from 564 to 730 each year, statewide.

“This is a reminder that rabies is a real threat in our area,” said Gordon Green, MD, director of the West Piedmont Health District. “Although raccoons, skunks and foxes are the animals that most frequently contract rabies, any mammal, including livestock, can be infected by the virus. Virginia law requires rabies vaccinations and boosters for dogs and cats 4 months old and older. Vaccines also are available for ferrets and livestock, so owners should check with their veterinarian for the most appropriate vaccine and vaccination schedule to protect their animals.”

Rabies is almost always fatal. The rabies virus is present predominantly in the saliva and nervous tissue (brain and nerve cells) of infected animals and is transmitted most often by a bite. It also can be transmitted when saliva or nervous tissue gets into open cuts or mucus membranes, such as the eyes, nose and mouth. Rabies causes an inflammation of the brain and is almost always fatal once symptoms develop.

When a person or animal is exposed, timely treatment is effective in preventing the development of rabies. Contact your doctor or veterinarian immediately to discuss treatment. For animals, depending on their vaccination status and likelihood of exposure, strict isolation for up to six months may be required.

The best ways to prevent the spread of rabies are:
• Vaccinate all dogs, cats and ferrets by 4 months of age, by a licensed veterinarian, and keep vaccinations current;
• Enjoy wildlife at a distance;
• Secure your yard and home and eliminate possible sources of food, water and garbage that can attract wildlife and other animals;
• Do not allow your animals to roam free;
• Avoid contact with stray animals;
• If you are bitten or exposed to rabies, wash the wound thoroughly with lots of warm water and soap and seek medical attention immediately; and
• Vaccinate selected livestock, as recommended by your veterinarian.

For more information, visit www.vdh.virginia.gov/Epidemiology/DEE/Rabies  or call the West Piedmont Health District at 276 -638-2311.
