2016 Rabies Webinar presented by Bernadette Albanese, MD, MPH, Medical Epidemiologist
Epidemiology of skunk rabies in Colorado and new recommendations from the NASPHV 2016 Compendium of Rabies Prevention and Control. Skunk rabies was first detected in Colorado in 2007 and over the past 10 years has rapidly spread westward from the eastern plains into the Denver metropolitan area. As of June 2016, rabid skunks have been identified as far west as Golden, Colorado. The skunk rabies epidemic has increased the risk of rabies exposure to domestic pets, requiring prompt assessment of potential exposures and rapid response by public health, animal control, and veterinarians. Tri-County Health Department disease control staff will review the epidemiology of skunk rabies in Colorado; conducting a rabies exposure risk assessment for pets; and the newly published 2016 Compendium of Rabies Prevention and Control from the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians.
