(UNDATED) - The Department of Natural Resources is keeping its caves closed.

The closures, that began in May 2009, are a precaution against the uncontrolled spread of White-Nosed Syndrome, also know as WNS.

WNS has now been found in at least 12 states, and continues to kill bats in record numbers but is not a threat to humans.

Privately owned commercial caves in Indiana such as Squire Boone Caverns, Marengo Cave and Blue Springs Caverns remain open.
