Cats can continue to go outdoors as normal - Covid-19 Pandemic

The current advice from the British Veterinary Association is that cats can continue to go outdoors as normal.


It is only cats from infected or self-isolating households that should be kept indoors if possible and only if the cat is happy to be kept indoors. Some cats cannot stay indoors due to stress-related medical reasons.


There have been a tiny number of cases of Covid-19 in animals and in all cases, it is likely that the transmission was human to animal. There is no evidence that pets can pass Covid-19 to their owners. There fore, please do not panic. It is, of course, important that good hand hygiene is practiced, you do not touch other people's cats and you do not allow unknown cats into your homes.
