While there have been no reports of pets or other animals showing symptoms of novel coronavirus, people with symptoms should limit contact with animals until more is known about the virus, WOAH says on its website. When possible, have another member of your household care for pets while you are sick.

Novel coronavirus patients should avoid petting, snuggling, and sharing kisses and food (we know, it would be hard for us, too), according to WOAH. The AKC further suggests you avoid petting animals if you are sick because the virus could be transmitted via fur.
