After prodding by President  Nito Cortizo, Minister of Health, Luis Francisco Sucre,  has announced, that Sunday quarantine will end and   Panama beaches and spas, will reopen starting this weekend. 

The  11 pm -5 am curfew will remain in place every day.

Access  to the beaches has been banned since March, due to the pandemic. 

The reopening will be governed by certain regulations, including that people stay within their "family bubble", which should not have more than seven individuals. Family means people living together not distant relatives.

No walks will be allowed. The sale of alcoholic beverages, food and the presence of street vendors is prohibited.  And there will  be no entry by  buses or other mass transportation

If a family takes r food, they can only consume it inside their bubble. and, between each bubble there must be a distance of at least four meters.

Places that have restaurants and inns may serve the public, complying with all sanitary measures, and must have the respective permits

Access  will be  6:00 am to 4:00 pm

"Visitors must respect all the biosafety regulations, they can only be without masks while they stay inside their family bubble or when using the spa. Once they break that bubble and go to a social area or have to share with other people, they should wear their masks, "Sucre said

Further to my comment of two days ago. I stand corrected. I am informed that Panama Press later in the day corrected themselves that individuals are permitted to walk the beach. "Bad translation - paseo in this context means tours. In the communication this evening they said paseo de buses...tour buses." Many experiments have been tried by almost every government on earth through this Covid mess and many have been mean spirited. This was NOT one of those instances.

I will begin by reminding the world the following: "Quarantine is when you restrict the movement of a sick person. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of a healthy person." These are nothing more than authoritarian rules designed to make law-abiding people into criminals. You see Authoritarians turn everything into a crime it is there way to control people. Until enough CovidIdiots wake up this will be the new ABnormal they force down our throats with their boots on our necks...until enough people say no more! We are the 99% and at any point if people stop listening we can return to normal immediately! They don't want people to understand this fact because they gain power through the masses acquiescing their power. This is the reason from shifting from fear hysteria about deaths to focusing fear hysteria on "new cases" to create the casedemic to panic people ...this is SICKO ABUSE OF HUMANITY!!!! Now beaches are open but if you walk down the beach you will be sanctioned by the authoritarian government and if you cannot afford to pay the fine they arrest you. If you don't have your mask on in the sunlight (which kills and sanitizes everything around you) you will be sanctioned by the authoritarian government and if you cannot afford to pay the fine they arrest you. Sounds pretty close to other times in Man's history doesn't it? Does this sound like democracy or does all of this seem a little off putting? Coronavirus is the cover for these endless abuses of humanity by these psychopaths across the world! https://youtu.be/RweOsFdQoWQ “New ABnormal” they want us to live under. Police track her to beach using her cell phone, her crime was leaving a 5KM prison radius they brutalize this pregnant woman with twins until she is bleeding from her private parts! This is their new sick ABnormal across the world and everybody should be standing up to this authoritarianism against all of society NOW! Welcome to New World Order or Great Reset they like to call it to rename their extreme totalitarian programs being launched against law abiding citizens across the planet. If you do not like the past 9 months of hell you are not going to like what they have in store for you in the future. It will only get worse if people do not stand up and say F off, stop wearing the masks, stop listening to decrees that violate fundamental human rights. They locked the world down like animals’ scientists know now more people died than from corona-virus from endless reasons. This is some super sick psychopathic humans, don't even deserve to be called humans who are doing this along with all those colluding. Wondering why the coronavirus crimes are happening against humanity?

These basic human rights to enjoy the sun and beach should NEVER been removed. Lack of Vitamin D was a leading reason for death when infected by coronavirus (elderly stay inside more often scientists quickly made this link) but across the world they DID EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO INSURE PEOPLES VITAMIN D WOULD DROP! Think that was by accident then you are a CovidIdiot! ##### I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW (MEME MUSIC VIDEO) this is dedicated to all the CovidIdiots https://www.bitchute.com/video/Nh3jielapSuB/

I don't know about the rest of you but when I read about this or that restriction being lifted by the Panamanian government, I am looking for the "zinger" that they just have to add to demonstrate the heavy hand of control. The "zinger" is always some brain-dead, mind-numbing twist always accompanying the "lifted restriction" ; always, always, always demonstrating the punitive nature of government and mean-spirited control having utterly no basis in logic or medicine, particularly in relation to Covid 19. The Zinger relating to the opening of the beaches is "no walking allowed". People within a social bubble should be able to walk anywhere they please as long as they remain socially distanced from others. People from outside a given social bubble should remain masked and socially distanced but permitted to walk. Give the people their freedom back along with sensible guidelines to minimize the transmission of Covid 19 and please, please, please drop the heavy handed zingers....

MIRADOR DEL BOSQUE. Where the heck are you coming from? I did a Housesitting in Uverito April to August 2018. OK...I will grant you that you are right about certain things in Playa El Uverito. But. tell me what is wrong with partying over the weekends? Isn't that what people do all over the world? As for the trash...I have seen it been picked-up on a very regular basis. As a matter of fact, they were picking up mine Monday and Friday. And for the lowly cost of $18/year. I have not seen many places where they can do it for less. Las Tablas landfill burning...when I was there, all expats were complaining that they were not burning enough. Are you telling that now people are complaining about burning too often? S...or get off the pot, as the saying goes, friend. Pig farm getting you gagging...well, I do not know where you reside exactly, although I have a good inkling of who you are and where you "reside", may I suggest you find another Bosque, far, far away from that awful smell. As for me, I will have no problem taking over the one you will vacate. Well, you see, I never had much of a problem with the pigs. I love bacon !!!!

Why not try Santa Catalina or Las Lajas? Clean beaches, great food and real cold beer. Why hate on Panama so much? If you don't like it.....leave already.

The local beach here is called uverito. It is a typical mud colored Panama beach. On the weekends it's packed with noise blaring cars and people partying. The rest of the week is quieter but the trash is always there. Also the local pig farm can have you gagging if the wind comes from that direction. The local landfill for Las Tablas is there and they burn it nonstop so sometimes the toxic smoke hangs over the coast. People who live there have health problems ranging from lung issues to hear disease. If you want a nice beach skip Panama and go to Mexico or Aruba.

DevilsAdvocate, you ask “ have you abdicated your responsibilities to MINSA?”. Maybe the better question is: “Have you abdicated your responsibility to the WHO?” If Panamá were still a sovereign nation, it might reflect on the possibility of ending the Plandemic right now; how? Stop testing with PCR (with its ridiculously high —86-94% false positives) and get back to the doctor/clinic model of diagnosis.

People will get their lives back, believe me. First something need to happen to get them on the edge. Next year the taxes will go up, first the ITBM (value added tax) and the rest like CSS , income and business will follow. Someone has to pay for all these extra expenses and loans. Once they see that less has been deposited on the 15th and 30th and goods are going up a few percent they will go out and fight. But.... that's a bit late and till now they have been lame and not willing until the hammer really comes down. 2021 could be an interesting year, time to buy beer and nuts to watch the show.

You humans are being treated as livestock and are perfectly ok with it. Wake up and realize that once you give government this much power over your life you will never get it back.

“After prodding by President Nito Cortizo, Minister of Health, Luis Francisco Sucre, has announced, that Sunday quarantine will end and Panama beaches and spas, will reopen starting this weekend.” This statement seems to outline a big part of the issue. The president is supposed to be the one in charge. You do not need to prod ministers you direct them. Are you running this country or have you abdicated your responsibilities to MINSA?
