Have I been exposed to rabies?

A possible rabies exposure includes a bite, scratch, saliva contact to your eyes, nose, mouth or an open wound, or other physical contact with a bat or unvaccinated animal.

If a bat is found in a room with a sleeping person or a young child, exposure cannot be ruled out. The bat should be safely captured (watch the video) for testing.
