Moana Pool cap increased

Covid-19 restrictions have been changed at Dunedin’s Moana Pool, meaning more than double the number of swimmers are allowed in the lanes.

Since Level 2 began, only one person was allowed in each lane, for a maximum of 18 people in the pool at a time, and 45 customers in the building.

New changes to the rules have been outlined on the Dunedin City Council website.

They allow for 38 lane swimmers and a maximum total of 66 in the facility.

The main pool and lap pool are open but the leisure pool, spa and diving boards are still closed, and showers remain unavailable.

The pool is open for lane swimming and aqua jogging only.

Public opening hours have changed to 6.30am to 6.30pm to accommodate groups which will be using the pool outside public hours.

A city council spokeswoman said it would announce further changes for the pool tomorrow.
