    Just FYI-Current thinking is that animals are not vectors, other than any other fomite. If an infected person sneezed on your dog then in a very short period of time you handled your dog, there is a risk. Same as handling a grocery cart. But we do not think animals are harboring and carrying the disease, and acting as a vector to spread the disease.
