I am wondering what would happen if my rats caught Corona virus. They are both old girls, just about 2 1/4 and I want to know if I should do anything. What would Corona virus do to pet rats if not caught early? How would I know if they have it? Can rats even get Corona virus? Should I take precautions? Is this a dumb thing for me to worry about?

note
I am worried about a lot of things right now, my old rats are not at the top of that list. They are much lower than my grandparents and my high risk family, but I still want to be aware, so I know if I need to do anything.

No evidence that rats can be infected with covid 19.

In fact labs have attempted to infect rodents and other animals for testing purposes. Rodents are resistant and so genetically modified animals are being used.
