LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Time to buy your tickets for the Los Angeles Zoo. The zoo announced it will reopen next week.

Zoo officials said they will officially reopen on August 26. General admission and member reservations will be available at noon today.

The zoo closed its gates on March 13 but when guests are let back in, they can expect an online reservation-based ticketing system, required face coverings and limited capacity.

"The world has changed over the last several months, and so has your Los Angeles Zoo. You will notice enhanced protocols and procedures onsite to ensure the health and safety of all guests, staff and animals," said Denise M. Verrer, CEO and director of the zoo, said in a statement.
