Can I get rabies this way?

I had to move a half broken trash bag that was on the ground that got pulled out of the can by I'm sure an animal (possibly rabid) back into the can. It was wet but that's only because it just rained. Since I touched the bag, was there any way I got rabies?

    No, and rabid animals are not foraging for food in trash cans either.

    No, rabies is a blood-borne vector.
