At New York City’s animal shelter in Manhattan, staff members have tested positive for Covid-19 causing the agency to temporarily shut down and plead for help from local animal rescues and citizens alike to care for the animals. On Tuesday evening, the entire staff at Animal Care Centers of NYC in Manhattan located at E. 110th St. near Second Ave. went into quarantine thus closing the entire building.
On Tuesday, the message on Twitter spread quickly.
Animal Care Centers@NYCACCCOVID cases among staff and subsequent quarantines have left us no choice but to temporarily close our Manhattan Care Center. We are essential workers who have never stopped working face to face with the public during this pandemic. We hope to reopen soon. Brooklyn remains open.
“We are facing an emergency situation. Our staff responsible for walking the dogs, feeding the animals, cleaning their kennels and more are unable to come to the shelter for the next two weeks.While we have staff from other departments pitching in to help, we are unable to properly care for the animals with such little human power.”
