It’s being reported that an employee at the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium has tested positive for COVID 19.


CBS is reporting the latest:

The employee hasn’t been at the facility since last Tuesday, and the zoo says any employees who interacted with that worker are quarantining.

The Allegheny County Health Department has been alerted and is working with the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.
