CLEVELAND — Masks will no longer be required for fully vaccinated visitors at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

A spokesperson for the Cleveland Metroparks said Tuesday that guests who are not fully vaccinated will continue to be required to wear masks.

The zoo still encourages social distancing of at least 6 feet between groups not in the same party.

Several exhibit areas will continue to operate in one-way directional flow to allow for social distancing.

The Cleveland Zoo joins Cedar Point and Progressive Field that have followed CDC’s new guidance on the masks for vaccinated individuals.
