We’re promoting wellness at Zoo Atlanta.

  • Effective Sat., July 31, masks will be required for ages 2 and up in indoor areas and for some optional experiences, such as Wild Encounters.. 
    • Masks will be available for purchase at all retail locations.  
  • You’ll find hand-sanitizing stations throughout the Zoo for your convenience.
  • We are frequently cleaning and disinfecting touchpoints, restroom touchpoints and restrooms using a solution approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

What can I do to help the Zoo promote a healthy environment?

We are doing all we can to promote a healthy environment, and in doing so, we also rely on you to keep recommended self-care in mind for your safety and the safety of others. Throughout your Zoo experience, please be mindful of current CDC guidelines and public health recommendations.

  • If you or a member of your party are feeling unwell, please visit us another time.
  • Wash your hands often, using soap and water, for a minimum of 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, the CDC recommends a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
  • Masks are recommended for general admission and are required for ages 2 and up for certain optional in-Zoo experiences.  
  • Help us promote social distancing by remaining at least six feet away from others who are not part of your party.
  • If you must cough or sneeze, please do so into your elbow, not into your hand or into the air.

Where should I go for more information on COVID-19?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the best resource for useful, factual and up-to-date information on the virus.
