HONOLULU – The Honolulu Zoo would like to inform the general public that while they are included in the “outdoor attractions” category in Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s Restore Honolulu 3.0 Order, they are reopening their doors to the general public on June 5 with a modified schedule and hours of operation. The zoo will be open every Wednesday through Sunday (closing for maintenance and cleaning on Mondays and Tuesdays).

- Requiring all individuals to wear a face covering (except for those with prohibitive health conditions and children under 5, or while eating near any concession stand or taking a break in specified lawn areas and physically distanced from others)
- Posting signage and arrows to control the flow of traffic through exhibits and ensure physical distancing
- Limiting the amount of people allowed in enclosed exhibits (i.e. penguins, hippopotamus, African wild dogs, etc.)
- Installed hand washing and sanitizing stations in various locations
- Keiki Zoo
- Playground/play apparatus
