Because there is a risk that people with COVID-19 could spread the virus to animals, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that pet owners limit their pet’s interaction with people outside the household. To do that, you can:
- Walk dogs on a leash at least 6 feet away from others.
- Keep pets indoors when possible, and don’t let them roam freely outside.
- Avoid public places where many people gather.
