Three bats have tested positive for rabies in Ingham County, but the viral disease has not been transmitted to any people.

Rabies is almost always fatal without proper vaccinations.

A person can be bitten in their sleep by a bat and not know it.

If you find a bat in your home wear thick gloves and try to use an empty container to capture it and remove it from the house.

If a family member comes in contact with the bat call the health department to pick it up for testing.
