Middlesbrough's multi-storey car parks have become the latest public facilities to close in the ongoing Covid-19 campaign.
The Captain Cook Square and Zetland multi-storey car parks will therefore be closed with effect from Wednesday, March 25.
The move follows last night's Government guidance that people should stay at home as much as possible and avoid gatherings and all unnecessary travel.
Alternative parking is available across the town centre, with all charges currently suspended in Council-run car parks and on-street pay and display parking bays.
A Middlesbrough Council spokesman said: "We're taking every possible measure to support the Government's call for home working, social distancing and avoidance of unnecessary travel.
"With only key workers needing to travel and a limited number of shops remaining open, there should be ample parking spaces available to meet the reduced demand.
"These measures are vital if we are to slow the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, and we're grateful to the travelling public for their understanding and co-operation."
The multi-storey closures and parking charge suspensions will remain in force until further notice.
