Auckland Council to close pools, leisure and recreation centres to reduce risk of COVID-19 transmission

All Auckland Council Pools and Leisure centres (as of close of business Friday 20 March 2020) and childcare services, including Kauri Kids ECE centres and OSCAR programmes (as of close of business Monday 23 March 2020), will be temporarily closed until further notice.

The decision has been made based on the Government’s guidance relating to COVID-19 in New Zealand.
We know the impact of closing these services will have on our customers. However, the safety and wellbeing of our customers, staff and communities in Auckland is our utmost priority.
