Placer County health officials notified the state agencies that a visitor to the Mineral Bar Campground found a bat and allowed other visitors, including children, to touch the animal. Immediate medical treatment is recommended for anyone who had physical contact with the bat between Aug. 1 and Aug. 3. Read more
