This is from a local TV report.

The APL is recommending that owners do the following:

Identify a friend, family member, or pet sitter to take care of your pet(s) in the event you cannot

Have crates, food, and extra supplies on hand in case you need to move pets quickly

Research boarding facilities and make sure your pets' vaccinations are up to date in the event boarding becomes necessary

Prepare a list of the medications your pet takes including dosages and administration instructions. Make sure you have enough medication on hand for at least a two-week period of time, if not more.

Make sure your pets are wearing an identification tag or are microchipped. In Ohio, the law requires that dogs are licensed in your county.

“The best thing pet parents can do is not panic and stay healthy for your pets by practicing good preventive measures, such as hand washing and avoiding close contact with other people,”
Cleveland APL President & CEO Sharon Harvey said in a press release.

“Every single day of the year it is crucial that you have a back-up plan in place for your pets in the event you become ill and cannot care for them for a period of time – even when there’s not a looming threat of pandemic!”

Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have suggested the following precautions in the event you are diagnosed with the virus:

Wash your hands before touching or feeding your pet

Do not sneeze or cough on your pet

Avoid snuggling or kissing your pet

Do not allow your pet to come in contact with other people or animals.

Again, CDC officials reiterate these precautions are only for those who are diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus.

This report was from 3/15.
It should say it is advice for anybody not just for those diagnosed with the corona virus!

Also, when walking your dog, it is best not to let it play with other people's dogs as you don't know who has been touching and cuddling that dog and if the owner(s) are infected with coronavirus.
