We were so excited to hear our beloved Sacramento Zoo had a plan to reopen on June 1st according to zoo officials in a Facebook post but now, it looks like we have to wait a little longer to see the cute meerkats and giraffes!

The zoo’s initial plan to reopen included limiting the number of guests allowed in the zoo and requiring staff and visitors to wear masks. Our friends at the zoo later announced on Instagram their plans quickly got rescinded saying:

“After receiving initial permission from Sacramento County health officials, our plans to reopen the zoo on June 1 under a carefully phased plan were rescinded this afternoon. We will continue to work with government officials to plan for a safe opening. Thank you for your support and your patience. Please stay tuned.”

A spokeswoman for the zoo said the reopening plan was rescinded suddenly because it didn’t match what was currently authorized to reopen by the state according to The Sacramento Bee.
