Chiang Mai Zoo has closed its doors for two weeks after an intern working with its animals tested positive for Covid-19.
The zoo was shut from Sunday and at-risk staff will be tested and quarantined, said its director, Wuttichai Muangman.
The zoo will also be cleaned with disinfectant before reopening to the public, he added.
The intern tested positive after working at the zoo on April 5-7.
Yesterday, a veterinary team checked 125 animals at risk of exposure to the virus.
Among the at-risk animals were monkeys and tigers.
All were found to be healthy.
