People are tired of the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is more commonly known as COVID-19. Most of us have grown increasing frustrated and exhausted due to the isolation and lack of jobs, as well as the constantly changing mandates, recommendations, and information on the best methods to slow or prevent the spread of the virus.
Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) no longer recommends Americans to wear face masks in most public indoor settings, including schools. However, the CDC does recommend wearing masks in indoor public places in areas with high COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations.
Most of us are unaware of the fact that people can spread COVID-19 to wild and domestic animals, including our family pets. On the other hand, according to the CDC, animals are highly unlikely to spread the virus to humans.
