This time of year, Public Health is preparing for the seasonal increase in calls from the public and from healthcare providers about humans coming in contact with bats and concerns about potential exposure to the rabies virus. When preparing for a fun-filled summer, we encourage the public, healthcare providers and veterinarians alike to familiarize themselves with what to do in case you or your pet has an exposure to a bat or other wild animal. Additional information on the rabies virus, what to do in the event of an exposure and provider resources can all be found on the Clark County Public Health website:
