COVID-19 & PETS
Pet owners in San Mateo County should be aware there have been reports of pets (cats and dogs) that have become ill with COVID-19. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or suspect that you are infected because you have symptoms, isolate yourself from others including your pets. If your pets become ill and have respiratory signs, contact your veterinarian for advice. There has been no evidence that pets can transmit the COVID-19 virus. At this time, COVID-19 seems to be solely a disease that people pass on to their pets.
