So as we're all aware, the world has gone crazy and the zombies are coming. Ok, maybe not but it kinda feels like that sometimes. I just want to set the record straight on some rumors I've heard.
This is straight from the CDC website:
While this virus seems to have emerged from an animal source, it is now spreading from person-to-person. There is no reason to think that any animals including pets in the United States might be a source of infection with this new coronavirus. To date, CDC has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19. At this time, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19. However, since animals can spread other diseases to people, it’s always a good idea to wash your hands after being around animals.
Visit their website to get more info on how to be healthy around your pet. https://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/index.html
Remember, pets give us so much benefit and love, it helps us be healthier too. So please don't think you need to give up your pet in this strange time, they're much needed for love and snuggles.
