After the longest non-hurricane-related closure in its 64-year history, Miami Seaquarium reopened for business this past weekend. During its 99-day break, the popular South Florida attraction implemented a slew of cleaning and safety procedures, consistent with recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
The safety measures include:
- Limiting overall park and amphitheater capacity
- Pre-entry temperature checks
- Requiring face coverings and additional personal protective equipment where appropriate (except children under 3 and those with a valid medical condition)
- Operational changes that better allow for social distancing
- Additional sanitizing stations
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing measures
- Temperature checks for all guests and team members before entering; any person with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher (or displaying other symptoms related to COVID-19) will be denied entry.
Miami Seaquarium will limit capacity not only in the park and amphitheaters, but also regarding exhibits, food outlet and common areas. In order to accomplish this, all guests will need to purchase an annual pass or date-specific ticket before visiting the park.
Dozens of hand sanitizing stations have been added all around Miami Seaquarium, and thorough cleaning will be conducted at regular intervals throughout the day at high-traffic locations. All of these cleaning and safety measures will be reinforced through instructional signage and additional staff training.
