Deer Infected with COVID Put Hunters on Alert

The Center Square (Nov. 22) – Dr. Rebecca Lee Smith, epidemiologist and veterinarian at the Carle-Illinois College of Medicine, said the high percentage of infected deer is a red flag for hunters this season. She said, “Avoid handling deer carcasses with your bare hands. Wear a mask. Consider wearing a face shield. Wear gloves. If you have carcass parts left over, you want to bag them and get rid of them.”
