NOTICE: There is NO current evidence of companion animals spreading COVID-19 to humans; the spread of the virus is due to human-to-human transmission. Therefore it is important and preferable that, whenever possible, companion animals remain in their homes with their human families.
Incorporate your pets into your emergency preparedness plans!
- Stock up on essential supplies such as food, litter, medications, etc.
- Make contingency plans with family, friends or neighbors so you have someone to provide for your pet if you are unable to do so – either in your home or in the temporary caretaker’s home, boarding kennel or veterinarian’s office.
- Have a written authorization for veterinary care should you be unable to be responsible for doing so.
- Should you have to quarantine due to possible exposure to COVID-19:
- Keep your pets with you while in quarantine
- Have another member of the household care for the pet (feeding etc.) If not possible, wash your hands regularly and wear a face mask when tending to or interacting with your pet.
Where a companion animal has been in contact with a person who has or suspected to have COVID-19, remember the greatest risk of exposure comes not from the animal but from person-to-person contact. Strictly adhere to social distancing!
