June 6, 2024 -- It has been reported to us that a second bat has tested positive for rabies in the Genoa Township area. Please always take the following precautions if you or your family come in contact with a bat:

🦇 If you can, safely capture the bat then call the Health District at (740) 368-1700. If the bat can be safely captured, it can be euthanized and tested for rabies. Follow these instructions for safe capture: cdc.gov/rabies/bats/contact/capture.html

🦇 If you come into direct contact with a bat, talk with your doctor about appropriate care, especially if the animal cannot be submitted for testing.

🦇 If a pet comes into direct contact with a bat, please contact the Health District about appropriate quarantine and veterinarian care.

🦇 Keep your pets up to date on their rabies vaccinations.

It's important to note that bat bites can be so small they can go undetected, therefore a person asleep, impaired, mentally disabled or a child may not know they were bitten. If a bat is found in the same room with one of these individuals it is considered an exposure, and you should call your doctor for appropriate care.
