This helpful document from the University of California at Davis is the most clear and authoritative source we have found regarding these questions.

Note there are 39 known strains of coronaviruses, and COVID-19 is just one of those strains.

Naturally, and as always when providing a healthy home for companion birds, it remains important to take sensible and reasonable steps toward the hygiene of your birds’ environment and your home environment – providing a clean, safe, and healthy environment for all captive birds.
