5. Your Pets & COVID-19
Because of the limited information available on Pets & COVID-19, the CDC recommends you maintain social distancing for your pets between people & other animals outside of your own household. Employees have been asked to refrain from interacting with your pets. We are also concerned with the spread of 'people germs' by repeated petting and are therefore limiting customers from handling animals prior to purchase. For the latest information about coronavirus and pets, we encourage you to visit the CDC's Website: If You Have Pets | COVID-19 - Source: CDC
