COVID-19 Safety Measures
Masks are required for all visitors. Online tickets for admission and programs must be reserved in advance and booked online. Reptilia will be reducing the capacity of visitors by limiting ticket sales and monitoring the number of guests in the building. Floor graphics have been placed throughout the zoo to guide guests on their tour and help maintain physical distancing by keeping all groups 14ft (over 4 metres) apart. Contactless payments are preferred at this time.
Starting February 16, 2021, hours at the Whitby location are as follows:
Monday to Thursday: 11am – 5pm
Friday to Sunday: 10 am – 6 pm
Reptilia Zoo has another location in Vaughan, which is scheduled to reopen on February 22, subject to provincial and York Region COVID policies.
