UCHealth - COVID-19 and pets: What you should know

Should I avoid contact with pets or other animals if I am sick?

The CDC, as well as World Small Animal Veterinary Association and AVMA, recommend that sick people do not handle pets or animals, as there are other coronaviruses that can cause illnesses in pets as well as be transmitted from animals to people. Not handling your animal when you are sick is always a good precaution to prevent your animal from becoming ill.

As such, these organizations recommend that people sick with COVID-19 should avoid animals just as they would other humans until more information is known. This means not sharing food, or hugging or kissing them.

There is a log more information in the article than I can quote here.
