Currently, there is limited evidence that companion animals can get infected with COVID-19.
As a precaution, if you have contracted COVID-19, try to have your pet cared for by another member of your household and avoid kissing and snuggling with your pet and don’t share food.
Until more information is known, avoid contact with unfamiliar animals and always practice good hygiene washing hands before and after the interaction.
