The Department of Health And Mental Hygiene is warning Maryland residents of a possible rabies exposure incident at a Ravens football game.

Health officials say a bat reportedly landed on a person sitting in the 500 section of the M&T Bank Stadium on Friday, August 17 during the 8 p.m. game against the Detroit Lions. The bat was brushed off and flew away before a rabies test was possible.

Health officials say it is possible that other people seated in that area may have touched the bat.

If you had contact with the bat, you’re asked to call your local health department.
