When a report gives a suspected or a positive diagnosis of rabies, or when the city, county or state health officials feel that a rabies crisis may be imminent, the health officials may recommend to the city manager citywide quarantine, and upon the invoking of such quarantine by the city council, by resolution, no animal shall be taken into the streets or permitted to be in the streets, except for short periods of exercise under leash and control of a competent adult. During the quarantine no animal may be taken or removed from the city without written permission of the animal control officer. This declaration must be made by notice in a general circulated newspaper of the community and will last as long as health officials determine the situation requires such action. (1986 Code)
