Information on COVID-19
If you are sick with COVID-19 (either suspected or confirmed) you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just as you would around other people. While there have been rare reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about this virus. When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with them. Ensure that your pet is well-groomed and clean your pets food and water bowls, bedding material, and toys. For more info on your own health, contact a physician.
