FAQs & Policies

Are masks required during the program? (updated 2/24/22)

All attendees and staff are required to wear masks while indoors and during human-animal interactions like animal encounters. There are currently no exceptions to this policy. It is our priority to keep all attendees, animals and staff safe. Live animal encounters allow attendees to be up close and personal with a variety of animals, including mammals that may be susceptible to the disease. Please note protocols may be different for other programs and events due to the nature of the programs. (updated 2/24/22)

What other COVID guidelines are in place?

The Cincinnati Zoo staff will be cleaning shared spaces (like bathrooms) with approved COVID-19 cleaning supplies, following CDC guidelines. Staff and attendees will utilize hand washing or hand sanitizer throughout the program.

Will I be grouped with other attendees?

Yes, your registration group will be with other registered attendees.

I have a gift certificate/class credit. How do I use it?

To use your gift certificate/credit, you will need the order number and certificate number. Go through your registration as normal. When you get to the final payment screen, just above where you enter your credit card information, check the box that asks if you’d like to use a gift certificate. Check the box, and enter your certificate/credit information.

Up to 6 certificate/credits can be used per order. If your credit is for less than the total balance, you will then enter your credit card information. If your credit has a remaining balance, that balance will remain on that same certificate/credit and can be used at any time- remember, they never expire!
