DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA) — In an attempt to get “back to normal,” many businesses are trying to reopen while taking into consideration the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Scovill Zoo reopens Monday with some precautions in place.

The petting zoo, herpeaquarium and Z.O.&O. Train and Endangered Species Carousel are all closed. People are also being asked to book tickets online since walk-up ticket purchases will be limited.
