The Assam State Zoo-cum-Botanical Garden here was formally reopened on Thursday after ten months of being closed because of the pandemic.
However, visitors will only be allowed entry from Saturday, a day after New Year’s Day.
Sources said that the price of entry tickets would remain the same as before.
However, to stop overcrowding and prevent the spread of the virus, no tickets will be sold at the zoo counter and visitors have to purchase tickets online.
Visitors have also been asked to follow all COVID protocols, including wearing masks, while entering the zoo.
According to reports, personnel would be stationed at the gate to help visitors who do not have access to the internet to avail tickets.
Entry is likely to be allowed in a staggered manner in two separate time slots having a restricted number of visitors.
