CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The Texas State Aquarium will be voluntarily phasing back its operations to no more than 25% capacity due to the rising COVID-19 cases.

The new rules will be effective July 3, through July 17, 2020. The move is said to help people social distance better inside the aquarium. Guests are required to wear masks if less than six-feet away from another person.

Aquarium President and CEO Tom Schmid released a news release, stating, "July is our busiest month of the year; we typically welcome between 90,000 and 100,000 guests. We felt it was important for us to be able to control guests admissions to insure a safe experience for all of our visitors onsite."

The H-E-B Splash Park will also be operational at a 25% capacity.
