In order to minimize the risk of infection to staff, volunteers and visitors the Calgary Zoo has:
• installed hand sanitizer stations in a number of locations;
• posted hand wash reminders/instructions in all washrooms;
• asked all visitors, including children participating in school field trips, who may be infected with H1N1 to refrain from visiting the zoo for a period of at least 7 days after onset of symptoms as recommended by public health officials; and
• implemented an H1N1 Influenza Sick Leave Policy for all employees, volunteers and contractors working at the Calgary Zoo.
