COVID-19 Considerations

  • Masks are required in all zoo buildings, including animal buildings, restaurants, event spaces, and restrooms.
  • All individuals ages 5 and older must show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to dine in any of our seated dining establishments or attend a private event.

Buildings and attractions may be closed on a rotating basis for cleaning and other safety and/or animal welfare considerations.

Lincoln Park Zoo does not require proof of vaccination to enter the zoo, visit animal buildings, or use restrooms. Guests may also purchase grab-and-go food without proof of vaccination.
