The San Diego Zoo and Safari park reopened Saturday following California lifting the stay-at-home orders on Monday.
"We are so excited to be open now to be making our contributions not only to make a strong connection with nature, and our guests, but also to employ team members and to make that contribution to the local economy," said Dwight Scott, executive director of the San Diego Zoo.
During the initial reopening phase, there will be limited shows, shopping, dining and transportations available at both parks, the zoo said.
The zoo's Guided Bus Tour, Kangaroo Bus and Skyfari Aerial Tram and the Safari Park's Africa Tram will be unavailable.
All visitors ages 3 and older will need a ticket or membership and reservation to visit the park.
The San Diego zoo said visitors should have their reservation and form of admission ready prior to entering. No same-day re-entry permitted.
Health screenings are required for all guests prior to zoo entry. Visitors are required to wear facial coverings and practice social distancing at both zoo locations.
"Both the Zoo and the Safari Park have implemented measures designed to ensure a safe and healthy guest experience. These measures meet and exceed current guidance from health authorities, including the CDC, along with requirements of the state of California and San Diego County," the zoo said.
San Diego remains under the purple tier, therefore the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park can reopen as outdoor destinations.
