CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Texas State Aquarium is another big attraction that's reopening to the public on Friday.

The TSA has been closed down for nearly two months. When it reopens, it will be following the 25 percent capacity rule.

All staff members will be required to wear face masks.

Visitors will also be encouraged to do the same, but it will not be mandatory.

Guests will also have to observe a one-way flow as they pass by exhibits.

“We'll have different traffic rules throughout the building to make sure there's not congregations of people, all in an attempt to really make sure we provide a safe and a great time at the aquarium,” said Jesse Gilbert, the TSA’s senior vice president and chief operating officer.

There will also be floor markings to encourage social distancing.

And some attractions like the splash park and the touch exhibits will be closed.

Visitors are also encouraged to buy their tickets online.
