CORONAVIRUS, YOU, AND YOUR PET

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CORONAVIRUS TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR
PET


Obviously, many pet parents are concerned about the spread of
coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, and how to protect their families
and their pets. The good news is that at this time, the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization
(WHO) say there is no evidence that companion animals, including pets,
can spread COVID-19. Nor is there currently any evidence that we can
transmit the virus to them. However, as information about this virus is
still developing, there are precautions you should take to protect your
family and pets, including:

* WASH YOUR HANDS - use soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and
especially after coughing, sneezing, contact with others or with
animals. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer.
* Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
* If you have any symptoms of respiratory illness, stay home and
restrict your contact with your companion animals
* Those infected with COVID-19 should avoid contact with animals,
including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food.
* Know the symptoms - they are similar to influenza fever, cough, and
shortness of breath.</p>
