Staff have put up new signs encouraging physical distancing, and guests will have to follow new rules on site to prevent coronavirus transmission.

“We’re looking forward to reopening, but things are going to look a little different,” Lindsey Galloway, director of the Edmonton Valley Zoo, said in a news release. “We will be providing an enjoyable visitor experience with modifications in place to protect the health and safety of our visitors, staff and animals.”
