Auckland Council will close a number of its venues in the city centre on Friday 13 November, following advice from the Government for people to stay away from the central city.

  • Auckland Central City Library
  • Tepid Baths
  • Waitematā Local Board office
  • Service centres at Bledisloe House and Graham Street

The Ellen Melville Centre will be closed to the public but will remain in use as a community testing centre.

Venues on the fringe of city centre, including Studio One, the Parnell Community Centre, Ponsonby Community Centre and Freeman’s Bay Community Centre will remain open.

Regional Facilities Auckland will provide a separate update on venues it operates in the city centre, including the Auckland Art Gallery and New Zealand Maritime Museum.

The council will decide on the reopening of these offices and venues following further advice from the Government. Further updates will be provided through OurAuckland.
