There is no evidence of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) circulating in pets or other animals. There is nothing to suggest pets may transmit the disease to humans.

In line with the Public Health Wales general advice on COVID-19, you should wash your hands regularly and before and after you come into contact with animals or pets.

It is possible that the coat and face of pets could be contaminated with virus shed by people, for a short time, just as other surfaces can be.

The measures being taken to control COVID-19 are subject to change, possibly frequently, so do please keep yourself updated with the latest advice and instructions.

The advice covers:
