Pets during COVID-19

via CDC

  • CDC is aware of a small number of pets worldwide, including cats and dogs, reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, mostly after close contact with people with COVID-19.

  • Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low.

  • It appears that the virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations.

  • Treat pets as you would other human family members – do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household. If a person inside the household becomes sick, isolate that person from everyone else, including pets.

  • This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.
