By Stephanie Cogan, Associated PressAUSTIN (AP) — If you’ve been following the spread of coronavirus in the United States, you know how the virus can change the way your family lives.
And you might have wondered if it’s time to rethink how your family and pets live in an environment where viruses are the biggest problem.
If you’re one of those people who is sick, the answer is yes.
If not, you can rest easy knowing that your family’s health is protected.
But if you’re worried about your pet, there’s a good chance that a pet in your home or near your home could be infected.
Here’s a look at how coronaviruses spread through your household.
How you can protect your family from COIDS:• The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that pets stay away from the living area of the home, especially if it is not being used for cleaning or cooking.• If you are a pet owner who has had pets in your family for a long time, you might want to have them tested for COIDS.
It may not be necessary, but it is recommended.• Do not put your pet outside in the hot sun, even if it has a window open.
COIDS can travel from the pet to your home through the skin of your pet.• It’s also important to keep your pet on a leash and have it on a solid surface for walking, running, or interacting with other pets.• You can get tested for the virus if you have a pet who has been exposed to a pet carrier, like a dog, cat, or ferret.
The virus can be transferred to the carrier through their saliva or mucus, which could be transmitted through the bite of an infected pet.
You should also consider taking precautions for your pets when traveling to areas with higher rates of coronas, including:• Make sure you have access to air conditioning, heating, and cooling.• Make certain your pets are well-fed and water is available.• Don’t feed your pet raw food or have a food preparation area that you would not touch if you had the virus.• When you are visiting your pet in an area with high rates of COIDS, keep an eye on the temperature and humidity.
It can be a good idea to wear masks or wear gloves while visiting your pets.
How to protect your pet from COID:• If your pet is infected with COIDS but you can’t isolate your pet because the virus is not spreading in the household, you should have it tested for coronaviral antibodies.
It should also be tested for any other possible infections.• Even if your pet can’t be isolated because you cannot isolate it, you may want to consider testing it for COID, if the pet is not already sick.
It could be that the pet has not been vaccinated against COIDS and is still contagious.• While testing for COIDs is not necessary, it can help you protect your pets from infection.
You can do this by wearing an appropriate mask and keeping your pet’s cage clean and free of droppings.• Many people who are sick or in quarantine do not need to be tested.
If a person is able to test, they can keep their pet.
If the person is tested, they will be sent home with a quarantine certificate, which will allow them to keep their pets and to be home with them.• A quarantine certificate allows you to keep pets in quarantine while you are away from home.
If someone is tested for a COID-related infection, you and the person can be reunited in person if you return to your homes and the quarantine certificate is renewed.
