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.
  • Per City of Atlanta ordinance, guests 10 and older are required to wear masks. It is strongly recommended that those under 10 also wear a mask. For your convenience, masks will be available for purchase at Zoo Atlanta.
  • 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.
  • Government health organizations currently recommend that persons ages 65 and older, persons who reside in senior care facilities or long-term care facilities, or persons with underlying medical conditions stay home or maintain distance from others.
