  • What specifically is the zoo doing to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19?

    The Tulsa Zoo is opening in stages, in a way that maximizes opportunities for social distancing, reduces the number of touch points, and allows zoos staff to increase our already rigorous cleaning protocol. Here is an overview of the safeguards in place:

    • The zoo has ordered four disinfecting machines that can disinfect indoor spaces, outdoor surfaces and equipment in 10 minutes; these will be available as the zoo increases the number of guests allowed on grounds.
    • Handwashing stations have been added throughout the zoo, bringing the total to 14 alcohol-based hand sanitizer and 10 handwashing stations.​
    • The Clean Team will conduct spot checks regularly of higher-traffic areas.
    • Multiple social-distancing signs and messaging have been placed on grounds
    • Signs and messaging for guests to practice proper handwashing have been placed on grounds and in buildings as well.​
    • Staff will be on grounds to watch for unexpected congestion areas and to answer questions.​
    • Plexiglass barriers have been installed as needed.
    • Benches and picnic tables have been moved to at least 6 feet apart.
    • Public restrooms will be open and cleaned every two hours. ​
    • Air-dryers will be replaced with paper towel dispensers (because of the use of recycled air).
    • Timecards have been added to all restrooms to reflect each cleaning time. ​
    • Train seats, handrails and open attractions will be cleaned every two hours. ​
    • A wipe station will be located at each train station so guests can grab a wipe on their way in and wipe down their own seat if they choose. ​
    • Train will be disinfected and sanitized at the beginning and end of each day. ​
    • Food and gift staff will wear PPE. ​
    • Hand sanitizer provided for guest use. ​
    • Countertops, as well as guest tables and seating (once reopened) cleaned after each use. ​
    • High touch points such as registers and equipment used by staff cleaned throughout day.​
    • Additional staff dedicated to daily cleanings and sanitization. ​
    • Discontinuing refills of souvenir cups.​
    • Discontinuing self-service of items such as condiments.
    • Gloves worn when interacting with the public and cleaning.​
    • Proper social distancing when working with the public, peers and animals. ​
    • In some cases, safe animal management practices require staff to work together within six feet; the zoo has protocols in place to safeguard staff in this situation.
