If I did have to set them down I would take them to the farthest place possible.

I tried to stick mainly to places where there were tons of humans but limited dog areas. At two shots they've got a decent immunity but I don't trust it 100% until 1 week after the 3rd shot. I've personally never had to deal with parvo and I hope I never ever have to, it's a scary disease
I don't think Carson City is high risk. The outbreak is in a small farming community.... But heck now I don't know what to do. Maybe I'll just leave him crated and home where I know he is safe even if he is unhappy about being crated for so long.
