Wash your hands right after touching animals or anything in the areas where they live, roam, or eat.
Wash your hands when you leave animal areas, even if you didn’t touch the animals or if you wore gloves.
Running water and soap are best, but if they are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and wash your hands with soap and running water as soon as you can.
Keep Food and Animals Separate:
Don’t eat or drink around animals. Keep food and drinks away from animal areas.
Don’t share your food with the animals, even if you think the food is part of the animal’s regular diet. Animals should eat the food provided for them by the animal exhibit.
Don’t eat or drink raw (unpasteurized) products. Raw products made or sold at animal exhibits may include milk, cheese, cider, or juice.
