Warning issued after rabid bats found in Joliet, Cook County

The Will County Health Department and the Illinois Department of Public Health are raising awareness about potential rabies exposure after rabid bats were recently found in Elwood, south of Joliet, and in Cook County.

Rabies, a deadly virus that affects the brain and nervous system, is a fatal disease if not treated. It’s contracted after someone is bitten by an affected animal or when saliva from a rabid animal comes into contact with a person’s eyes, nose, mouth or open wound, health officials said.

Bats are the most common carriers of the rabies virus in Illinois, but the disease can also be found in raccoons, skunks, foxes and coyotes. Exposures tend to happen more frequently in the summer months, especially July and August, officials said.

Anyone who discovers a bat in their home should contact the local animal control or health department instead of killing or releasing it, according to a news release. If animal control is unavailable, residents should attempt to capture the mammal with a box or coffee can while wearing thick gloves. Secure the container and punch small holes in it to allow so it to breathe until it can be given to an animal control officer.

If someone has been exposed to rabies, including if they wake up to find a bat in their room, they should get treatment, the release said.

Animals do not have to be aggressive or display symptoms to have rabies. Bats, however, will display unusual behavior, such as being active during the day, being unable to fly or lying on the ground, the release said.

Park district holding open houses to get indoor rec space feedback

The Naperville Park District is holding open houses for residents who want to offer feedback on the district’s indoor recreation space needs.

The first will be from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 2, at the Kite Fly event at Frontier Sports Complex, 3380 Cedar Glade Drive. District staff will be manning a tent to take resident input, officials said.

Feedback can also be provided from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, at the Fort Hill Activity Center, 20 Fort Hill Drive.

Anyone who cannot attend those events should submit comments via the district’s website, napervilleparks.org/indoorrecreationspaceneedsassessment.

The needs assessment is being conducted through fall as the district evaluates its current indoor space, identifies gaps and inefficiencies, and creates a plan to address current needs and future growth, officials said.
