The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through human-to-human transmission, but there is evidence of transmission at the human-animal interface.
We are aware of reports from mink farms in Denmark and the Netherlands, where minks have been infected by farm workers. In a few instances, the minks that were infected by humans have transmitted the virus to other people. These are the first reported cases of animal-to-human transmission;
It is still recommended that people who are sick with COVID-19 and people who are at risk limit contact with companions and other animals;
