COVID-19 and pets

There is no evidence to date that domestic livestock and pets can be infected with or transmit COVID-19 but infection and transmission by animals has also not been ruled out.  Therefore, anyone who has COVID-19 should avoid contact with animals, just as they should with people, until more information is available.  If there is already an animal in the household, that animal should remain in isolation along with the patient.
