The Los Angeles Zoo will reopen to the public tomorrow for the first time since the most recent COVID-19 regional stay-at-home order went into effect on Dec. 7, 2020.

—Enhanced cleaning procedures for high-contact surfaces and restrooms;
—Hand sanitizer stations throughout the zoo;
—One way traffic pathways throughout the zoo to allow for physical distancing among guests;
—Signs reminding people to physically distance, as well as markers and physical barriers placed throughout the zoo;
—The closure of high touch areas, including the Papiano Playpark, and the contact yard at the Winnick Family Children's Zoo.
