Can cats transmit COVID-19 to people? There is currently no evidence that cats can transmit COVID-19 to humans and so owners should not worry unnecessarily. However, as it is known that the virus can survive on surfaces such as door handles, it may be possible, despite the lack of evidence, for the virus to survive in a similar way on a cat’s fur.
