Orlando, FL (AP) An Orlando zoo that has had to relocate some of its animals due to the Zika virus outbreak says it is planning to reopen in early April.
Officials say the zoo’s veterinary care team will take care of the animals as they prepare to leave the facility.
The zoo is one of several in the U.S. where some animals have had to be relocated.
It was also the site of a large outbreak of the virus last year that led to some deaths.
The zoo has reopened for some animals, but not all of them.
It will reopen to the public on April 17.
Zoo officials say the animals will be cared for in isolation at a facility in South Florida.
Orlando Public Schools officials say students will not be allowed in the zoo, which has more than 2,200 animals.
