The SeaWorld parks have been closed for more than two months and in that time, SeaWorld says they have “worked with state and local officials, third party medical and epidemiology experts, and attraction industry leaders to enhance our strict sanitation and cleanliness standards,” they said in a recent email.
Their plan, which SeaWorld shared the details of in a document, addresses guest and employee safety in six main ways:
Employee and guest temperature screening
Cleaning and sanitation
Work and sick policies
And though their parks were closed for some time, SeaWorld’s animal conservation and rehabilitation efforts did not stop. SeaWorld San Diego’s animal care team rescued seven California sea lions, one northern elephant seal, one harbor seal and three shorebirds, and SeaWorld Orlando returned two manatees and three sea turtles back into the wild after rehabilitating them.
