The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommendations that may make it less likely for the virus that causes COVID-19 to spread between people and wildlife. This is especially valuable for hunters, outdoor recreationists, or any member of the public who may interact or come in contact with wildlife. Currently, there is no evidence to suggest the virus is spreading in free-living wildlife, or that wildlife might be a source of infection for people. However, some wild animals are known to be susceptible to infection.
