NAPLES, Fla. — Bats have been found inside a Naples gym, according to the Florida Department of Health in Collier County.

The health department said these bats were found at Naples Family Fitness located at 2349 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Ste. 5.

Health officials want you to call the health department if you, a family member, or someone you know had contact with a bat. This is because you can be at risk of rabies.

Rabies is spread through saliva and humans may become infected through a bite wound, scratch, or exposure of a fresh cut to saliva from an infected animal, according to health officials.
