“It is determined the closure, for an indefinite period, of the municipal parks under the management of the Municipal Secretariat for the Green and the Environment, as well as the Bicycle Park and the Sports, Recreation and Educational Center for Workers – CERET”, orders Covas. Villa Lobos, in the West Zone, because it is state-owned, is not part of the decree, and its suspension depends on a decree from Governor João Doria.
