Q: Can my pet get COVID-19?
A: The United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has NOT reported any cases of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19 in the United States.
Q: Can pets spread COVID-19?
A: According the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) to date, there is no evidence to suggest that companion animals or pets can spread the virus. *The source of the virus is thought to be an exotic animal source, (potentially a bat) and NOT from any type of domesticated species, such as dogs or cats.
Q: If a person is positive for COVID-19 and have pets, what should they do?
A: Out of an abundance of caution, if a person is sick with COVID-19, they should limit their interaction with pets and animals, just as they would with other people. Those diagnosed with COVID-19 should avoid the following interactions with their pets:
• Petting or cuddling
• Sharing Food
• Being licked by their pet and/or giving their pet kisses
Here is what the CDC has to say:
"You should restrict contact with pets and other animals while you are sick with COVID-19, just like you would around other people. Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick."
