Health Warning After Music Festival

Touched A Bat On South Straddie? See A Doctor Now

Anyone who may have come in contact with a bat at South Stradbroke Island over the weekend is being urged to get themselves checked out by a doctor.

The Metro South Public Health Unit has put out the warning after reports of a number of people touching a small bat in the ladies toilet block at the Escape Music Festival.

Anyone who may have been scratched or bitten by the animal should get in touch to prevent the possible spread of lyssavirus, which can caused serious illness.
