The Detroit Zoological Society has revised safety protocols. We request that if you are not fully vaccinated, you please wear a mask inside buildings. It is our goal to make the Zoo experience one that is safe for our visitors, staff and animals. Let's work together. Please be respectful, help each other and help protect the endangered animals.
As individuals infected with Covid can often be asymptomatic and still spread the virus, we encourage individuals who cannot wear a mask to rethink their Zoo visit.For more information and to check updates from the DZS regarding health precautions related to COVID-19.
