Update as of April 20,2020:
Dogs and cats do not appear to be a source of infection for people. However, out of an abundance of caution, we recommend the following:
-Do not expose pets to any humans that are ill with any respiratory disease for 14 days.
-Practice social distancing between non household pets
-If someone in the household is verified with COVID 19, do NOT send pets to live with a neighbor or relative.
-If someone in the house becomes infected, communicate with the health department about testing animals in the house.
-Stay informed. Recommendations for testing may change on a daily basis as new information becomes available.
