Coronavirus, Your Pets and Your Pet Sitter at Love and Kisses Pet Sitting What You Should Know

Prevention

There is currently no vaccine to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The best way to prevent this illness is to avoid exposure to this virus. However, it is recommended to take precautionary actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases.

Precautions include

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask. Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Love and Kisses Pet Sitting is doing our part to stop the transmission of COVID-19.

  • Staff members are now equipped with disinfecting wipes, which we use to wipe down doorknobs, for example, before entering and after leaving clients’ homes.
  • Staff members are expected to use a company-provided hand-sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) between pet appointments.
  • We are working to avoid touching our eyes, nose, and mouth with our hands at all times if possible
  • The staff has been asked to avoid close contact with people they know who are sick. In addition, they are required to address it to management when they are feeling sick or have a fever.

Should one of our staff show any signs of illness, they will be required to stay home from work until they have fully recovered.

If a Pet Care Specialist arrives for a service to find a client homesick or any signs of someone in the home may be ill, they have been instructed to leave immediately

How Does COVID-19 Spread?

It is thought the infection spreads mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Love and Kisses Pet Sitting Takes Action To Stay Healthy

As we’re entering in and out of our clients’ homes and working with pets all day long, we realize that the transfer of germs can be pretty excessive. This is why we’ve equipped the pet sitters and dog walkers at Love and Kisses Pet Sitting with best practices in order to maintain a clean working environment.

    • Staff members are now equipped with disinfecting wipes, which we use to wipe down doorknobs, for example, before entering and after leaving clients’ homes.
    • Staff members are expected to use a company-provided hand-sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) between pet appointments.
