A statement released this afternoon said the facilities closed at 4pm today and will remain closed for the duration of the pandemic or until the Government announces a return to 'level 1' on the newly created alert system.
The Edgar Centre, which is owned by the DCC, is also closed until further notice.
Other DCC run facilites, such as the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, Toitu, and the Chinese Garden would remain open as "good social hygiene is more able to be maintained in these facilities", the statment read.
The measures are in line with new nation-wide guidance developed for local government and are being rolled out across the country.
