The safety and experience of our guests and our team members are our top priorities. We have implemented several new safety measures and updated processes to ensure the Aquarium is operating in accordance with the advice of the state and federal governments and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Take an in depth look below at the precautions being taken to make sure you and your guests feel safe and comfortable while enjoying a splashing event at Georgia Aquarium.
Strict Sanitation & Cleaning Schedule
The Aquarium is cleaned, and all guest areas sanitized every day with hospital grade disinfectant. Our staff continues to clean high touch areas throughout operating hours as well. High contact areas of the Aquarium, such as railings, elevator buttons, etc., are covered in a copper-infused film that reduces the transmission of viruses. Additionally, setup and breakdown time in between events have been increased to ensure proper sanitation of the event space before and after the event.
Amplified Entry Safety Measures
In addition to rigorous sanitation procedures, all guests must consent to a contactless temperature scan and security screening prior to entering the building. Any person exhibiting a fever (temperature of 100.4° or higher) will not be permitted entry.
Face Masks Required
For the safety of our guests, team members and our animals, Georgia Aquarium is requiring that all guests age 3 and up, wear a mask while not stationary or seated. Masks will be available upon entry for those who might need one.
All Georgia Aquarium team members are required to wear masks for the entirety of their shift. Catering staff are required to wear masks and other protective PPE such as gloves, for the entirety of their shift as well.
We have greatly reduced our individual and overall room capacities to ensure comfortable social distancing, and increased floor space in order to maximize your guests’ experience. Whether you are hosting an intimate vow renewal for five guests, fundraising gala for 500 guests, or even a welcome reception for 1500 guests, we are ready and able to safely provide an enchanting event. Please note that these are subject to change as we are continuously monitoring CDC and state guidelines and will adjust room capacities appropriately.
Line queueing plans have been implemented to encourage social distancing throughout event space at food stations, bars, and at exhibit viewing windows, which means your guests will have the unique opportunity to capture up close photos with our magnificent animals.
Reduced Contact Points of Service, Enhanced Hospitality
We are optimizing our contactless points of service through individually presented menu items, when practicable, and plexiglass barriers at bars and food stations while enhancing hospitality through additional butler and chef attended services.
Food & Beverage Guidelines
Modified menu options for food & beverage have been created to ensure CDC and state recommendations are met. We have increased the use of high quality, compostable service ware for guests as needed.
We are excited to welcome you and your guests back to Georgia Aquarium. Sea you soon!
