TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Botanic Garden reopened its doors to members Thursday for the first time since the coronavirus hit the area.
Thursday is a part of the garden’s phased reopening that will include the general public beginning June 1.
There are several measures in place for safety including limiting the capacity to 50 people at a time and a timed entry system.
The garden will be open on their usual day off -- Monday -- in order to allow visitors to space out their times.
Staff members will be required to wear masks and guests will be encouraged to wear them -- especially inside the Visitor Center and bathroom.
The Visitor Center had plexiglass installed at the Welcome Desks and there are signs throughout to remind visitors to practice social distancing.
Touchable surfaces and bathrooms are being cleaned every hour and there are hand sanitizer stations spread out throughout the garden.
