Pets and COVID-19: At this time, and according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19 and “there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals which may compromise their welfare.” Please consult those websites for the latest information.
