The GVMA is closely monitoring Public Health guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic in the State of Georgia.
Updated guidance provided to the AVMA from the CDC advises:
“Veterinary clinics should follow masking guidance for the general public.
While veterinarians are considered clinicians, the settings in which they work are not used to treat humans with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, and instances of animal-to-human transmission appear to be very rare.
Veterinary clinics should consider local transmission and vaccination rates when creating clinic policies for PPE use and interactions with clients.”
