San Antonio's Zoo, Aquarium, Amusement Parks Allowed To Reopen In Limited Capacity

Even the zoo has had to close until further notice.
Kathleen Creedon | Texas Public Radio

As Texas continues to relax its protective shutdown measures, attractions such as zoos, aquariums and amusement parks are starting to reopen in a limited capacity in San Antonio. 

What health and safety measures will be implemented to protect patrons and employees amid ongoing coronavirus concerns? How will social distancing be enforced, especially considering how many of their attendees are children? 

How has the public health crisis affected these family attractions in San Antonio? What about their employees and the animal housed in these facilities?

What will be different about zoo, aquarium and theme park experiences moving forward? How will they adjust to the "new normal" of life after COVID-19?
