The animals are desperate for you to come and awkwardly stare at them again :)
The Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley will be reopening to the public on July 24 with safety measures in place to protect humans and the animals, the zoo says.
The zoo has been closed since March 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, except for aweeks-long drive-through experience called Beastly Boulevard that ended July 12.
“Throughout these last months, the zoo has received an outpouring of kind words and support from our community,” Minnesota Zoo Director John Frawley said in a statement. “The zoo has been a treasured resource for more than 40 years and we are excited to be able to safely reopen and invite our guests to once again reconnect with beloved animals and the wonder of nature.”
