The most recent case of rabies on Long Island was discovered in January 2009 when a raccoon was confirmed to have the virus. Last year, the New York City Health Department’s Bureau of Communicable Diseases confirmed two cases of rabies in Queens County: a raccoon on September 28, 2010 off the Cross Island Parkway and an opossum on October 15, 2010 on the corner of 54th Avenue and Justice Avenue.
