The team at Walks Around Britain have read through many papers and research to find what we believe to be the current situation regarding Coronavirus and the outdoors. This feature provides our best interpretation of that research, but we are not medical practitioners. Last updated – 18/3/2020.
The virus is most commonly passed from person to person through coughing and sneezing. We know the virus can live on surfaces for some time, depending on the type of material, temperature and other factors – so in theory it could live on fur or pet hair. However, there’s currently no evidence that companion animals can spread Covid-19 to people.
