The research I've done agrees with what Jackie's said. I'd add that from the research I've read so far, the virus doesn't even affect all mammals the same--dogs who have shown antibodies have had few or no symptoms, and it seems that animals also generally only pass the virus on to members of the same species. Future research may prove that incorrect, but so far it appears that pets are not really a concern here.
ETA: Also, even if our birds could get it and pass it on to us (which all evidence says they can't!) Melody (and I presume all our birds) would really have no where to catch it from in order to spread it to the family. Us humans do have to leave the home for work or supply runs. Our birds just hang out at home all the time, so they're very good at social distancing!
