Social Distancing & Contact Tracing
By making a reservation for this event, I agree to maintain social distancing of six feet or greater at all times from all zoo staff, volunteers and other visitors who are not in my visit group and/or immediate household.  I understand I may be asked to leave the zoo if I do not abide by this policy in order to maintain public health and safety.  I agree that I and all members of my party will bring a face covering to the zoo.  Face coverings should be worn by those 2 years or older who are medically and physically able to.  I understand that Cosley Zoo must adhere to Illinois social distancing and face covering guidelines in order to remain open to the public.

I understand that if asked, Cosley Zoo will provide my reservation information to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and/or DuPage County Health Department. Cosley Zoo will only provide my information if it is requested for the purpose of necessary contact tracing.
