WINNSBORO, SC (WIS) - The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control says two adults in the Winnsboro area have been exposed to rabies.
Health officials say they are undergoing post-exposure treatments. They were exposed to a dog that tested positive for rabies. This animal is the second to test positive this year from Fairfield County.
"To reduce the risk of getting rabies, we recommend that people avoid wild animals acting tame and tame animals acting wild," said Sue Ferguson of DHEC's Bureau of Environmental Health Services.
