TOLEDO, Ohio — Following Governor Mike DeWine's announcement that zoos may open, the Toledo Zoo opened its doors in Friday. The re-opening was considered the start of "phase 1" and comes with guidelines and restrictions that guests and staff must follow.
Only members of the Toledo Zoo may visit the zoo between now and June 30. All visits will require an online, timed reservation to be made in advance. The zoo will be limiting guest access at 2,500 people as well.
Face coverings will be mandatory for visitors over the age of 2 when entering buildings and interacting with staff. Zoo employees will also be required to wear face coverings, except in situations where wearing them may not be practical due to the industry or job.
The Toledo Zoo's hours for entry during phase 1 are Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the park closing at 5 p.m. The zoo will not be open Mondays or Tuesdays.
According to the Toledo Zoo, phase 2 plans will be announced in July.
