We would like to send this message to ease your concerns regarding your own pet.
This article states that ‘THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT DOMESTIC OR CAPTIVE WILD ANIMALS CAN SPREAD THE CORONAVIRUS TO PEOPLE ‘. If you are being tested for COVID-19 or have symptoms relating to this disease, you are advised to separate yourself from pets as well as other people. For your safety it is recommended that you limit your contact and keep away from your pets until your symptoms have passed or a negative result has been received. When possible, have another household member care for your animals while you are sick, if you must care for them wash your hands before and after contact and wear a face mask.
