Dog walking and transferring Covid19

Carmen from Point Chevalier

Scientists have discovered that the Covid19 virus can be present on animal fur (if a person with it has coughed or sneezed around the dog) so it's best not to let your dog interact with other dogs when out on walks. You only have to pat your dog (who's rubbed against another dog carrying the virus) to then have the virus transferred to your hand and then household. I've seen this happen recently with 2 dogs being walked by different owners. It also brought the owners into close contact rather than staying 2 metres apart.
