Hands on Farm Petting Zoo Officially Reopens

Comox, BC – The Town of Comox wishes to advise its residents and visitors that effective Thursday, July 4, 2019 at 10:00 am, the Hands on Farm Petting Zoo will re-open to the public.

Further to the Town’s News Release of June 28, 2019 announcing that the Hands on Farm Petting Zoo was closed due to the confirmed presence of Ringworm [a fungal infection] confirmed in ‘Cosmo’ the Cow, we are pleased to advise that a veterinarian has now concluded examination of the remaining animals, giving them a clean bill of health.

We also wish to advise that during the closure, Hands on Farm staff carried out a thorough cleaning of the barn as per the Centre for Disease Control recommendations.

The Town of Comox wishes to thank its residents and the public for their patience and understanding during this unexpected closure and we look forward to welcoming you all back to the Hands on Farm Petting Zoo.
