Delhi zoo reopens for the public today on wards
The Delhi zoo reopened its gates to the public today, more than two months since it was shut during the second wave of the pandemic.
Delhi zoo director Ramesh Kumar Pandey said that in order to avoid queues at the ticketing stations, the zoo authorities had opened online booking for tickets on Saturday itself.
Visitors can buy the tickets either through the zoo’s website or at the entry gates using QR codes. In total 3,000 visitors are allowed in the premises during the day in two shifts — 8 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 5 pm — in order to space out the crowds and ensure adequate time for sanitising the premises.
The zoo will be closed to visitors on Friday. CCTV cameras have also been installed and the zoo authorities have urged visitors to adhere to Covid-appropriate behaviour.
