The park’s team of health and safety professionals has spent the last two months making sure the park is ready by working diligently alongside health officials, local and state governments, and attraction industry leaders to make its already exemplary sanitation and cleanliness standards even stronger.

SeaWorld furloughed 90% of its employees because the novel coronavirus forced the company to close its 12 theme parks in March. Theme parks are still not allowed to open under Abbott’s guidelines.
