In step with several other Atlanta attractions and museums, the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola will close their doors for multiple weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Georgia Aquarium announced it will close Saturday and will remain shut down through at least the end of March. In a follow-up tweet, the aquarium said, “Even though we may be closed, our animals will continue to receive all the care and love they get on a daily basis.”
The World of Coke’s closure will begin Monday and last through March 30, according to a spokesman for the Coca-Cola Company. In addition, the Coca-Cola Store will close during that span of time.
“Public health experts have called for reducing large gatherings and increasing social distancing,” the statement said, in part. “While we intend to return to full operations by March 30, this is subject to change as the situation evolves.”
Both are located just north of Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta.
