Is my bird safe?
“CDC has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19. Further studies are needed to understand if and how different animals could be affected by COVID-19.”
Center for Disease Control & Prevention
As many of our supporters have companion parrots at home, we wanted to also provide a few words of comfort and reassurance that it appears this particular strain of the Coronavirus cannot be transmitted to or from our parrot companions.

Are my birds safe from COVID-19, and is my family safe around my birds?
The short answer is Yes, your bird can not become infected by this strain of Coronavirus and so you can also not get the virus from your birds. To date, that appears to be true for dogs and cats as well, as they too are not susceptible to COVID-19.
