Covid Procedures and Expectations


We are so excited to reopen the carousel! Here are some of our procedures and expectations for guests. Thank you for helping us maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone to enjoy our carousel.

General Procedures

  • If you exhibit signs or symptoms of illness or if you have been exposed to the covid-19 in the last 14 days, please stay home.
  • Entry through front doors only (these are located on the corner of 1st and Washington).
  • We will be limiting the number of people in our building to allow for social distancing, so you may need to wait outside for a short time. 
  • Face coverings are required for everyone 5 years and older. Face coverings are encouraged for children ages 2-5.
    • Per OHA 2351JCustomers and visitors of businesses are required to:

      Wear a mask, face shield, or face covering when at a business unless the individual:

      • Is under 5 years of age.
      • Has a medical condition that makes it hard to breathe when wearing a mask, face shield, or face covering.
      • Has a disability that prevents the individual from wearing a mask, face shield, or face covering.

  • Hand sanitizer stations will be set up at our entry and everyone entering the carousel must sanitize their hands.
  • Please maintain social distancing between groups.
  • Please adhere to all posted signage and instruction from our staff and volunteers.


On the Carousel

  • Our animals are beautiful and it can be really difficult to choose which one to ride! For now, please don’t touch animals you aren’t riding. 
  • Only ride next to the people in your group.
  • Our volunteers will clean between rides. Please help us do so efficiently by limiting the surfaces you touch.


Some other things to note as you plan your visit:

  • We have removed some tables and chairs for social distancing. 
  • Our token machine is closed. No worries though because tokens can be purchased at the concession stand and gift shop.
  • Tours will be done differently as well. Our tour guides will be there to fill you in on our social distancing measures for those. 
  • Our cafe and gift shop will be open. Please follow social distancing signage posted.
  • Rentals are only available outside of operating hours.


We look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe and healthy.
