The zoo authorities announced today that National Zoological Park, Delhi will re-open from March 1 with an online ticket system. The zoo was shut on January 5 on a temporary basis due to the rising number of covid-19 cases. The portal for the ticket booking was disabled on January 4 itself.
All the supervisors in the Delhi zoo have been asked to ensure strict Covid-19 compliance and that the covid appropriate behaviour is being followed as the zoo is all set to reopen for visitors. The zoo was opened for visitors on August 1 last year (2021) but it was then shut for over two months due to Delta covid variant wave in the country.
The facility was earlier shut for visitors in March 2020 when a pandemic hit the country. Then again, in January last year, it was closed due to the bird flu scare. (Source FE)
