Zoo New England is announcing that both its zoos will re-open their outdoor exhibits to the general public on June 4 - but that you'll have to first go online to buy timed tickets in advance - no more just showing up. Also, you'll have to wear a facial covering, follow a one-way path through the exhibits and stay six feet away from other groups.
People with zoo memberships, though can return starting this Thursday.
At both zoos, indoor exhibits and amusement rides will be shut. At Franklin Park, there won't be any giraffe or budgie feeding; at Stone Zoo, no Masters of Flights: Birds of Prey.
Online ticketing begins June 1: Franklin Park | Stone Zoo.
