Most mask-wearing requirements for fully-vaccinated guests and employees have been dropped. Unvaccinated guests should continue to wear masks.
Masks will only be required in some close human-animal contact areas, according to the zoo.
“Pack a mask if you want to participate in giraffe feedings, pet a goat, or interact with the Galapagos tortoises,” said Thane Maynard, Cincinnati Zoo director, in a release. “They will also be required for private animal encounters and behind-the-scenes tours.”
Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden members no longer need to make reservations, but for now, non-members will still need to make reservations.
The Zoo opens daily at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.
