ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Saint Louis Zoo has announced Saturday, June 13 as its reopening date for the public.
The Zoo will limit attendance and require timed, free reservations in order to enter the Zoo. The Zoo will be open seven days a week and guests can make reservations at stlzoo.org beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 8.
The Zoo will require all guests over the age of 9 to wear masks/face coverings while visiting and all Zoo employees will be required to wear face masks. Guests with preexisting health conditions unable to wear a mask/face covering for medical reasons are exempt. Guests are allowed to remove or lower their masks/face coverings when practicing good social distancing of 6 feet or more when eating or drinking.
He says it's going to help the zoo pace the number of guests as they come through. The zoo says it will only be allowed about one-third the amount of guests compared to its normal capacity when reopening. Macek says it will be no problem for people to practice safe social distancing across the 96-acre facility in Forest Park.
