Shelter and Public Safety During COVID-19

Cindi Delany, DVM · May 28, 2020

As we continue to find our way through the COVID-19 pandemic each phase brings new challenges for our organizations to continue fulfilling our roles and missions while also taking all steps necessary to protect the health and well-being of both humans and animals.

In this course we’ve tried to gather a variety of materials that we feel could be of value to you as you make your way through the phases of re-opening during a pandemic. The focus is on human and animal safety as organizations adjust which services they offer and how.
