An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

The Aquarium of Niagara encourages all guests to be aware of current CDC guidance regarding public spaces, and how to keep yourself safe.

Together, we can help keep each other healthy!
