Recently there was a report of a tiger at the Bronx Zoo who was ill and tested positive for COVID-19. This tiger was believed to have contracted the virus from an employee carrying it. This tiger and several others were symptomatic. At this time there are no reports of animals infecting humans. However, in light of this information, the New York State Veterinary Medical Society has offered the recommendation that clients who test positive for COVID-19, are symptomatic, or those in self-isolation should take the proper precautions to distance themselves from their pets just as they would from children or other family members.
