LETTER FROM OUR MANAGEMENT
At Dinosaur World, the safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees are high priorities, especially during this time when the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is on all our minds. Our thoughts and prayers are with all persons affected by the virus and their speedy recovery.
We recognize the seriousness of the health concerns arising from the virus, and we are proactively taking actions to keep our parks clean and safe.
As part of our effort to keep our parks clean and safe, we are conducting higher frequency cleaning and disinfection, especially surfaces frequently touched by our guests and employees. However, in an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily close our park for the safety of our employees and guests.
As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we encourage all guests to follow the following precautionary steps recommended by the CDC:
- Wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. We also encourage guests to have personal hand sanitizers for use on an as needed basis.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid contact and distance yourself with those who are sick. Avoid handshaking, and unnecessarily touching objects that have been touched or handled by others.
We are closely monitoring the CDC and state department of health for updates and recommendations, and we will adapt our operations to keep our guests and employees as safe as we can.
We hope all of you remain safe and healthy.
