Rabies con­cern

The In­di­ana State Depart­ment of Health says peo­ple who had con­tact with a bat dur­ing the Pac­ers-Clip­pers bas­ket­ball game on Thurs­day pos­si­bly have been ex­posed to rabies. The depart­ment says any­one who might have touched the bat with bare skin is urged to con­tact a health care provider about re­ceiv­ing rabies vac­ci­na­tions.

It says that since the bat is no longer in Bankers Life Field­house, its rabies sta­tus is un­known.
