    Since August 2, 2006, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been collaborating with Group Workcamps Foundation, and state and local health departments in 13 states, to investigate reports of the presence of bats at a summer camp and assess the potential for exposures to rabies. The camp lodging facility which is located in New Richmond, Ohio hosted approximately 440 teenagers and adults from 13 states (Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin) from June 11-July 28. This advisory provides information about the investigation, an update for states that may receive inquiries due to public concerns about bats and rabies, and criteria for conducting risk assessments to determine the need for postexposure prophylaxis (PEP).
