Safety Guidelines

Gilroy Ostrich Farm monitors the latest developments and guidance from the CDC. As we continue to monitor the corona virus situation, we want to share a few updates that may be helpful when planning your trip to visit Gilroy Ostrich Farm.

Physical Distancing and Capacity Measures:

Upon reopening, there will be limited capacity based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote psychical distancing.

Managing guest density across Gilroy Ostrich Farm is a major focus. We will implement physical distancing guidelines based on guidance from health authorities, the CDC, and government agencies. This may include implementation of guest capacity measures to comply with state and federal guidelines. With over 20 acres to visit a variety of animals, there is enough room for many families to enjoy our amazing animals while remaining distanced from each other.

Cleanliness and Sanitation:

We have implemented increased cleaning and sanitation efforts in guest and staff areas. Additionally, we provide anti-bacterial soap in all hand-washing stations. We frequently clean and disinfect restrooms and food locations.

Experiences, services, and amenities may temporarily have limited availability.

While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impact of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and staff remain a top priority.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unusual times.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back for another great Gilroy Ostrich Farm visit. Until we meet again, we wish you and your family health and happiness.
