Public Health Alerts

  • Close encounter with a bat - Bats are generally harmless, and are beneficial for insect control; however, rabies is found in about 5 – 10 percent of all bats that have been submitted for testing after coming in contact with humans in Washington State. We really do not know how a bat acts when it has rabies. What we do know is that healthy bats fly around and are not eager to encounter humans. They are everywhere and come out to forage for insects in the late afternoons and early evening. If you encounter a bat lying on the ground, chances are, it is not healthy.
