Safe & Healthy
What We're Doing
We are committed to providing a safe, fun and educational experience for our guests while ensuring the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and animals.
- Daytime visits: Face masks are required indoors for ALL guests age 5+ in compliance with state public health guidelines.
Exception for Children Under 5
- Children under 5 are not required to wear face coverings. Children ages 2, 3, and 4 are encouraged, but not required, to wear face coverings. Children under 2 should not wear face coverings.
If guests don’t have a face mask when they arrive, a face mask will be provided to them.
Why are face masks important?
Wearing a face covering can prevent the spread of Covid-19-19 to others. You help protect your loved ones and others around you, even if you don’t think you have Covid-19. Face coverings can reduce the release of virus particles into the air when someone with Covid-19 speaks, coughs or sneezes.
What constitutes a face covering?
Under the Governor’s order, a cloth face covering is anything that completely covers your nose and mouth. It can be a scarf, bandanna or sewn mask with ties and straps that go around your head and behind your ears. Face shields are not an acceptable substitute for face coverings. A face shield does not fit snugly around the wearer’s nose and mouth, and does not stop the virus from getting into the air and potentially infecting others.
