What is a rabies quarantine?

A rabies quarantine is a period of observation, either at home or at an approved location, where the animal suspected of being involved in a bite scratch, or exposure can be watched to determine if there is any danger or the animal transmitting the rabies virus. The quarantine period for most humans is 10 days from the date the exposure occurred.
