Officials at the Georgia Aquarium say the COVID-19 pandemic has spread to otters.

Multiple Asian small-clawed otters at the Atlanta aquarium tested positive after showing COVID-like symptoms including sneezing, coughing, and fatigue.

They believe the otters contracted the virus from a staff member and have taken them ‘off exhibit’ for treatment.

The otters do not have any direct contact with guests.
