(June 15, 2021) In conjunction with the governor of California’s announcement on June 15, guests will no longer be required to wear masks or socially distance in outdoor areas when visiting the Zoo. Indoor exhibits and public gathering areas will reopen where available. Please note some areas will remain closed for unrelated reasons, such as construction.

For the safety of the animals, masks will still be required for giraffe feeding and other encounters involving mammals.

Local public health code requires unvaccinated guests (including children) to continue wearing a mask when entering indoor areas where they will be in close contact with others. While there is no requirement for providing proof of vaccination status when entering the Zoo, we would encourage unvaccinated guests to follow this guidance in indoor spaces.

Timed ticketing will remain in effect until further notice. This provides for a better guest experience in the park and allows the Zoo to slowly increase capacity safely as California reopens.

Please see the Zoo’s homepage for a current update on COVID-19 regulations and admissions information.
