San Diego County is warning outdoors people to stay away from squirrels because they could have the plague.

Three captured squirrels tested positive for the disease and fleas on the little animals spread the infamous disease.

According to San Diego County’s Department of Environmental Health (DEH) Director Jack Miller

“The big thing is to avoid contact with squirrels and the fleas they carry … If you’re camping, set your tents up away from squirrel burrows. If you’re hiking, don’t feed squirrels and don’t let your kids play with them”.

The DEH say to:

• Avoid contact with ground squirrels, chipmunks, and other wild animals.
• Do not feed, touch or handle wild animals.
• Do not rest, camp or sleep near animal burrows in the ground.
• Protect pets by keeping them on a leash, use flea control, or best of all, leave pets at home.
• Contact your doctor immediately if you become ill within one week of visiting a known plague area.
• Symptoms include a sudden onset of fever, chills and tender swollen lymph nodes.
• Do not touch sick or dead animals.

They also warns people to keep their pets from touching or playing with the rodents. They say to keep you pets on leashes and to use flea control like Advantage.

Contact a doctor immediately if you think you are infected. Symptoms include tender and swollen lymph nodes, chills, and fever.
