Prior to Memorial Day Weekend, Governor Lee lifted the COVID-19 related capacity restrictions on restaurants and retail and laid out guidelines for larger attractions to begin opening to the public.
One of those is the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, which has now announced that it will begin its reopening process in two weeks.
The aquarium, similar to the Nashville Zoo, will open to members only for the first few days (June 12-14), and then will open to the public beginning June 18th. Tickets will be sold in 30-minute interviews, allowing 75 guests to enter in each window, which should keep the aquarium at around 20% capacity. Guests will be encouraged to wear masks, and a one-way path will be put into place to maintain social distancing. Additionally, dive shows and other seated programs will be temporarily paused.
