Default Re: Hamsters and Covid...

I looked it up and found this: "At this time, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to people. More studies are needed to understand if and how different animals could be affected by SARS-CoV-2.".

It's important to note that animals do have coronaviruses of their own. Sometimes your dog or cat or hamster will get a cold. With this particular strain however, there isn't massive evidence of cross contamination.

Since COVID is also airborne, I believe that if the hamster was to get sick, it would've already. You most definitely would've been able to spread COVID before showing symptoms, and if their in your bedroom, then that's that then really.

I wouldn't be massively concerned. Even though your hamsters quite old, I think it'll come out fine. Perhaps you could keep your room ventilated or better yet, temporarily move the cage out of your room entirely.
