    A government order.  It isn't surprising to me.  Laws can change overnight and no one knows a thing about it.
    A few years ago they changed the streets into one way during the night.  The next morning, the police were out in force giving tickets.  That is just the way it is here.

      I bet the mayor was briefed on the budget deficit the day before the street change. I've lived in Brazil many years but have been away long enough that I can now smile fondly at this kind of improvisational governing style.

      But I'm sure none of it seems very funny to you now, especially with something so serious as an epidemic.

      Let's hope your local (federal?) authorities are now simply erring on the side of caution. At least they're doing something, right?
