caption:Rabies in the United States and Puerto Rico, 2016 to 2020

label:Distribution of major rabies virus variants among mesocarnivores in the US, including Puerto Rico, from 2016 through 2020. Darker shading indicates counties with confirmed animal rabies cases in the past 5 years; lighter shading represents counties bordering enzootic counties without animal rabies cases that did not satisfy criteria for adequate surveillance. Small non-enzootic areas with no rabies cases reported in the past 15 years are shaded if they are in the vicinity of known-enzootic counties and do not satisfy criteria for adequate surveillance. Rabies virus variants: ARC FX = Arctic fox, AZ FX = Arizona fox, CA SK = California skunk, E RC = Eastern raccoon, MG = Mongoose, NC SK = North central skunk, and SC SK = South central skunk.
