Health and Safety Guidelines

Help us make Jungle Party the safest it can be! Our community has contributed to Woodland Park Zoo’s ability to operate safely over the past year, with no COVID-19 cases among our staff or guests that can be traced back to our grounds. To continue this trend, we ask that all guests who are attending in person screen themselves for COVID-19 signs and symptoms. Symptoms of COVID-19 include cold or flu-like symptoms, cough, shortness of breath or other respiratory problems, loss of taste or smell. Any individual who has been recently exposed to COVID-19, diagnosed with COVID-19, or with symptoms of COVID-19 may not attend the event. Additionally, masks will be required to be worn by guests for the duration of the event unless eating or drinking.

Safety and health guidelines will continue to be updated to reflect phase guidelines at the time of the event.
