Illinois moves into Phase 4 of reopening June 26. What does that mean?



Everyone over the age of two who is medically able must have a mask on.

You have to be in groups of 10 or fewer and make sure you keep your social distance from others.

There will also be limited food options, one way walking lanes and all of the indoor animal habitats will remain closed.

Ticket reservations are needed seven days a week, with option from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., so the zoo can allow for social distancing.

Tickets appear to be sold out through the July 4th weekend. The zoo asks all those who do have tickets to keep their visit to two hours and there is no re-entry.
