Can I catch COVID-19 from my pet?

While there has been one instance of a dog being infected in Hong Kong, to date, there is no evidence that a dog, cat or any pet can transmit COVID-19. COVID 19 is mainly spread through droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks (Pflugge droplets). To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently and thoroughly.
