Various New Jersey destinations continue to reopen following the pandemic and you can add the Cape May County Zoo to the list.

I'd like to commend the zoo for keeping things going during this tough time from virtual tours or personalized shout outs.

After three long months, we can all become one with nature beginning Saturday, June 15 at 10 a.m.

As expected, there will be new rules in effect to keep visitors and the staff of the zoo safe.

First, the obvious. If you are not feeling well or running a fever stay home. Visitors that are ill will not be permitted into the zoo.

Cape May County Zoo is requesting that everyone over the age of two wear a face-covering during their visit to protect fellow guests and some of the animals that can contract COVID-19.

Visitors will see social distancing guidelines upon entering. Please practice the golden six-foot rule.

A one-way flow throughout the zoo has been set up to reduce crowding. The zoo will be operating at a reduced capacity. Guest numbers will be monitored closely, and the zoo will close upon hitting maximum capacity, so please check their socials before you head to the zoo.

The Reptile House and Aviary will remain closed.

If you've never been to Cape May County Zoo, put it on your to-do list for the summer. Admission is free, and the zoo has been named one of the best in the world numerous times.
