Fort Wayne Children's Zoo Home

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is making significant efforts to ensure a reasonably safe environment; however, the safety of visitors, volunteers, and staff cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of the pandemic.

Visitors who are 65 years of age or older, or individuals who are medically vulnerable to COVID-19 should ensure they take measures to be safe and not subject themselves to the risks this virus could pose.

By visiting the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
