Programs During The Pandemic
We are still operating and complying with Governor’s Hogan’s restrictions as of 11/23/20. Due to the nature of our business, we already operate in small groups. We are currently operating at 25%-40% of our building capacity. Your safety, the safety of our staff and animals is our first priority. Our two-story “open” rainforest is well ventilated. In addition, we have HEPA and UVB light filters that eradicate bacteria and viruses. We also have implemented extra ventilation and have strict protocols in place such as mandatory mask-wearing, social distancing, pre-screening, temp check, and disinfect before and after each program or station. We are also prescreening participants and now ask that if anyone in your family has traveled out of state to please notify us for further instructions. For any public programs, we have pre-registration only and collect contact info so that we can contact trace if needed. We are confident that we can continue to offer the same quality of programming while providing the safest possible environment for our patrons. We thank you for entrusting us with your kids and additionally for continuing to support us and our animals during this difficult time for all.
