On April 22, the CDC released a statement regarding confirmed cases of COVID-19 in two pet cats in New York:
“Public health officials are still learning about SARS-CoV-2, but there is no evidence that pets play a role in spreading the virus in the United States. Therefore, there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals that may compromise their welfare. Further studies are needed to understand if and how different animals, including pets, could be affected.”
As many of you are doing, we are monitoring this closely. We continue to follow CDC guidelines and recommendations.
