- Follow a one-way path through the GSC.
GSC guests will be strongly encouraged to:
- Wear a face mask.
- Watch the GSC Reopening – Safety in Focus video and review the Safety In Focus booklet.
High-touch exhibits, attractions and experiences as well as spaces where it is difficult to maintain proper social distance will be closed. This includes Hands-On Harbor (stingray touch tank), SciPlay Bay, the OmniSphere Theater, Adventure Theaters, the lower level of the museum, Inside Tracks behind-the-scenes experiences and Jeansboro Junction.
Glenn Dobrogosz, CEO of the GSC, says, “Like our brand new fishing cat kittens, we will be taking extremely safe and calculated baby steps as we initiate this reopening process. We know that these first few weeks will be highly limited, but we hope you will come back to see and say hello to your favorite animals.
“We are excited that when guests return they will be able to see our brand new outdoor Komodo Dragon exhibit and the incredible construction progress as we continue to build the largest expansion in the history of the GSC — Revolution Ridge.
“Lastly, the Rotary Club of Greensboro is wrapping up their incredible carousel project. Once COVID-19 has passed, the GSC looks forward to this amazing public grand opening.”
