CLEVELAND — After Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson signed an order Friday requiring all citizens to wear masks when in public throughout the city, Cleveland MetroParks Zoo announced the mask requirement extended to their facility as well.

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo announced it would be requiring masks or facial coverings for all guests planning to visit the zoo. All guests must also make a reservation before they head to the zoo.

Under Jackson’s order, there are no exemptions for those with medical conditions or for young children, but the mayor said the city will use “discretion” when enforcing the mask mandate.

Although not in Cleveland, Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky is also requiring guests to wear a mask while at its facilities.

All guests over the age of two will be required to wear masks throughout the resort with the exception of when they are in the water, dining or at the bar. All employees will be masked as well and social distancing guidelines are in place, the resort said.
