Re-opening Zoos Safely Under New Post Lock-down Conditions
Secondary schools across the country are beginning to reopen this week – starting with years 10 and 12 from Monday. Only a quarter of eligible pupils will be allowed in school at any one time and, as it stands, schools may not fully reopen until September at the earliest according to the government.
There will be facing a slew of new challenges. Around 300 schools and colleges will be offering between 5-30 hours of face-to-face teaching each week. Others are making a more gradual return by starting with pupils who are struggling the most, including offering individual pastoral sessions to monitor mental health. In short, the return will be difficult and testing, but there is hope.
Traveling to School With Social Dinstancting
To get a sense of it will be like to return, here’s a few of the approaches taken by a secondary school in Devon:
Students who do return will be encouraged to travel separately and avoid public transport
Those using public transport and will have to wear masks
School buses have a limitation on how many students they’re allowed to take on
Some schools have issued a ban on sixth-formers car sharing
Within The School Grounds
Within the school grounds, similar social distancing guidelines are being taken with particular emphasis on staff support and sinage:
Staff will be issued guidance handbooks on reopening safely
There will be signage in classrooms and corridors reminding students of the social distancing rules along with a one-way walking system.
Staff will be wearing high-vis jackets and will monitor entry and exit points
Parents should not gather at school gates or in the playground
Appointment based entry for outside visitors

How Regular Deep Cleaning Can Help To Keep Your School Safe
Ultra low volume (ULV) fogging which works by compressing disinfectant through a specially designed nozzle and producing a fine mist or aerosol. The water based chemicals are very low volume (0-49 micros). For zoos, there are a wide range of indoor applications where fogging is appropriate including, walkways, indoor exhibits, shops and eating areas.
Outdoors the virus is less prevalent. However, there are several areas that are equally susceptible including handrails, entry and exit turnstiles, animal enclosures, food stall counters and even bins and sidewalks. Regular cleaning throughout the day and professional deep cleaning at the end of each day can help to make your zoo a safer place for staff and visiting customers.
