Bat Safety

|   Environmental Health

Each year, the Northeast Tri-County Health District (NETCHD) responds to several reports about animal bites and exposures to bats. Most of these exposures occur during summer when bats are active, and people are spending more time outdoors. While bats are a vitally important part of our ecosystem, it’s important that people take precautions around them because of the risk of rabies.
