What happens to my pet if I get sick?
Keep your pet home with you, avoid close contact, and follow good hygiene.
The CDC is recommending that people who are sick with COVID-19 limit their contact with pets and other animals, just as
they would restrict contact with other household members. This conservative approach helps protect pets and other animals.
When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick. If you are sick with COVID-19, avoid contact with your pet, including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food.
If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets and wear a facemask. The virus can live for hours on many surfaces, including your pet's fur.
