The Los Angeles zoo is reopening today, with new guidelines in place.

After closing in December, Angelenos can visit the 133-acre L.A. zoo and its 1,400 creatures once again. It closed its doors to the public in mid-March due to the COVID-related state orders and remained shut for the longest period in the zoo’s history, it reopened in August and closed again after the regional stay-at-home order went into place.

However, your next visit will look a little different, with a list of social distancing and sanitization protocols in place. For starters, you will need to make a reservation in advance with the last reservation timeslot being 3 p.m. Tickets are already sold out for most time slots this week, which may also be a result of limit on capacity.

Here are the rest of the health and safety measures in place:

  • Masks must be worn at all times if you’re over 2 years of age.
  • Credit and debit cards are the preferred method of payment.
  • In-person presentations and interactive exhibits are closed until further notice.
  • guests will need to remain stationary while eating and drinking.
  • There are new traffic flows in place with signage to help guests remain 6 feet apart at all times.
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the zoo.

Tickets are $22 for those 13 and over and $17 for children ages 2 to 12. Infants can go free of charge.  Timeslots begin at 10:00 am, with the last entry at 15:00 pm.
