When, in the judgment of the County Health Director an emergency exists in the county due to a rabies epidemic, the County Board of Supervisors, for the protection of the public health, may declare a quarantine in the county and restrict all dogs and cats to their owner’s premises or require them to be leashed under restraint of their owners in such a manner that person or animals will not be subject to the danger of being bitten by them, effective immediately upon the declaration by the County Board of Supervisors. Such declaration shall be operative for a period of 30 days, but may be renewed by the County Board of Supervisors as necessary.
