CDC: Socially distance Rover and Fluffy

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention wants pet owners to keep their dogs and cats at least six feet from other pets or humans.

This is after a small number of family pets have become infected with COVID-19 coronavirus.

The CDC says pets should not interact with other pets or people from outside the household, and dogs should be kept on a leash, while cats should be kept indoors during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.

CDC guidelines  also say dog owners should avoid dog parks or other public places where people and dogs gather.

In 2013, the Municipality of Anchorage estimated that there were 75,000 dogs in the Anchorage-Chugiak-Eagle River area.

  • It’s really bad news if this disease is jumping from humans to other animals and then back again…really, really, really bad.

  • This is from The Onion, right?

  • This is absolutely ridiculous. Call it what it really is; Extreme Martial Law We are living in a Communist/Fascist/Nazi Government!!! The Bill Still Report today had a Portland, Oregon Nurse that said Nurses were being laid off because the Hospitals are nearly EMPTY. Seymour Marvin Mills Jr. sui juris

    • This is insanity, no less than tyranny, and all because of fear. Coronavirus hype has become the biggest political hoax in history. And now we have these headlines:
      Chicago in deep planning stages of mass vaccination for coronavirus
      Georgia doing door-to-door COVID-19 blood collections
      Contact Tracers
      Listen to Amazing Polly on YouTube re: contact tracers. The Public Health mafia (including the Clintons) are speaking in military language about an army of frontline agents to question the associations & whereabouts of anyone who tested positive for the virus.

    • absolutely asinine! I hope people are starting to understand what is really going on!!! Wake up and see how the controls are being tightened slowly so we will think it’s the new normal. I will not obey!

  • Yeah, I saw this on FOX News. The gift that keeps on giving.

  • CDC, LMAO
    There has been one instance in the world of pet transmission by contact. More hype and fear mongering, per the agenda.

  • OMG!
    .
    Does this apply to Twisty the boa constrictor, Hungry the tiger and various species of hypochondriacs and paranoids too?

  • Another example of leftist fear mongering. Absolutely asinine. There seems to be no limit to the idiot leftists and their attempts to control Alaska and America. Do Alaskans need to euthanize gold fish and canaries too? Makes about as much sense, to me. Idiocy rampant in the leftist circles. That’s what Alaskans have to look forward to until we vote these fools out.
