New York — The Parks Authority announced on Thursday that coronavirus cases continued to grow across the five provinces, and permission to use city parks and playgrounds was withdrawn until further notice.
The agency has also suspended the processing of winter permit applications starting December 1.
While the permit is granted, parks, athletics stadiums and other facilities will remain open on a first-come, first-served basis as long as they remain within the legal quorum for which people are allowed to gather.
The Parks Authority says it will continue to reassess sports permits as the pandemic progresses.
