There are still restrictions on the opening hours of bars, restaurants, shops and events, and the curfew, from 10 pm to 5 am. The decision, signed by Judge Ângela Catão, responds to an appeal by the Government of the Federal District against the suspension of the decree that eased the restriction measures in the capital.

With the determination, the rule that allowed the reopening of stores and the holding of events since Monday (29) continues to apply.

  • Commerce reopens in DF after a month of restrictions; check opening hours

When judging the case, the magistrate stated that “the establishment of conditions, by the judicial sphere, for the implementation of public policies constitutes an undue valuation of the legal assets in conflict”. Also according to the judge, “emergency measures, which aim to prevent the collapse of the national health system and ensure the preservation of lives, are already having extremely damaging consequences on the economy”.

After a month of suspension, services and businesses considered non-essential had activities resumed on Monday (29), with time limits defined for each category. During the restriction period, only establishments such as supermarkets and hospitals and clinics were allowed to operate.

The following day, on Tuesday night (30), a decision published by Judge Katia Balbino de Carvalho Ferreira, from TRF1, determined that the government should suspend non-essential activities again, at the request of the Public Defender’s Office of the Union (DPU) .

In the preliminary injunction, the magistrate defended that the spaces should be closed “until the occupation of ICU beds [Unidade de Terapia Intensiva] Covid-19 of the public network, be between 80% to 85% of its capacity, and, concurrently, the waiting list of ICU beds COVID-19 of the public network has less than 100 patients.

This week, the capital has kept more than 200 people in line for an ICU bed, and the occupancy of vacancies in the public and private network is over 96%.

This Wednesday morning (31), the DF government appealed to the TRF-1, asking for the annulment of the preliminary injunction. According to the decision, the Attorney General’s Office argued that the measure “was based on premises such as the lack of beds and the need to strengthen policies of social isolation, unduly ingesting itself in the space of powers constitutionally reserved for the Executive Branch” .

The decision was published this afternoon. When analyzing the appeal, the judge Ângela Catão mentioned that the return of the closing of the service and commerce “makes it difficult for the Federal District to plan for the controlled resumption of economic activities, with prejudice – including to its own health – of the most vulnerable population, which , most of the time, it does not have a financial reserve “.
