A new study from The Netherlands now shows the COVID-19 virus is common in dogs and cats owned by people who have the virus.

Researchers have not seen any evidence of the coronavirus passing from animals to humans though.

But the leader of the study says if you have COVID, you should avoid contact with your cat or dog, just as you would avoid being around other people.

As for Fido and Fluffy, even if they get the Covid-19 virus, the they are likely to have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all.
