TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Zoo announced it's implementing new restrictions Wednesday as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across Tulsa County.

The zoo is limiting the number of guests allowed per hour, to 300 from 500, as effort to reduce the spread of the virus, according to a statement on the zoo's website.

Our zoo is fortunate to offer nearly five miles of outdoor, walkable pathways in addition to our indoor facilities. With the increase in local coronavirus cases, however, we feel this is the right time to do more to keep all within our gates safe. We can best achieve this by reducing the number of people on grounds at a time.

We will continue to monitor the trend in local cases and, as we have since reopening to the public in May, adjust our operations as needed. I am so appreciative of our zoo fans who have supported mask requirements and ticketing changes to comply with local ordinances so we can create a safe, fun experience.
Tulsa Zoo President and CEO Lindsay Hutchison
