CDC: Animals and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Key Points
    Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Some cause illness in people and others cause illness in certain types of animals.

    Coronaviruses that infect animals can become able to infect people, but this is rare.

    We do not know the exact source of the current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

    We do not have evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19.

    We do not have evidence to suggest that imported animals or animal products imported pose a risk for spreading the 2019 novel coronavirus in the United States.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Some coronaviruses cause cold-like illnesses in people, while others cause illness in certain types of animals, such as cattle, camels, and bats. Some coronaviruses, such as canine and feline coronaviruses, only infect animals and do not infect humans.
