On Monday, June 1,  the start of the second stage towards the new normal Panama’s  Ministry of Health (Minsa issued a resolution making the use of masks mandatory as part of the effort to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.

As  the second block of economic activities came into operation and  absolute quarantine  ended the movement of people on the streets surged

Although most commercial venues and public transport were already requiring the use of masks it was only a recommendation and there was no rule forcing people to wear them.

Non compliance will lead to sanctions, not yet determined.

Minsa, has reported  13,837 confirmed cases and 344 deaths.

Correct Pedro. Captain works for newsroom panama. My real name is not Snake, but I have not had anybody alter any of my posts yet. And we are free to say what we want here so I guess we can give them some slack for that.

Thank you, Pedro and Captain, for the voice of reason. Marvel, did I read you correctly? You don't care to live under a dictator who is governed by his ego and really knows nothing about this virus or health. So tell us all: When did Trump get here and take over?

Marvel get out of there as soon as you can. You see the warning signs just like the jews did in germany. Some people like to wear masks because it looks better than their real face like captain crunch and cisterno3. Now you know why they call it a "humanitarian flight" out of Panama.

Masks save lives. Ask South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and ihter Asian nations where masks are widespread and covid is better controlled than in Panama and the USA.

I was fined yesterday for not wearing a face mask. I was pulled over by a moto police. he said that everyone must wear even in the car. I told him that I am the only one in the car. He said rule is when you leave house must have mask on at all times. I will go today here in Coronado to see how much I have to pay. Wear your masks because these Nazis are for real!

Masks are proven to drop infections ( Dr John Campbell for reference material) by 50% . Wear one with pride please. This is especially important right now as lockdown lifts and case numbers already double as a consequence.

For all of those complaining about Panama, the best thing for you is to depart. All countries have had to deal with Covid 19 and most take measures that seem the best at the time. Panama is no exception and overall the authorities have done a good job attempting to contain the spread. Stop complaining and denigrating this country with futile whining.

Insane rules, masks are of no use only harmful to your health. Who are these people and who is paying them to keep the country under these draconian laws. And yes Steve, we are trying to get out of this Country but they keep cancelling flights. We do not care to live under a dictator who is governed by his ego and really knows nothing about this so called virus or health. Help us all survive these ridiculous laws and lawmakers.

Not back to any Normal by any standards. Who is running this clown house? This is pure dictatorship. Also what is the name of the person that mandated this. Identify yourself and your credentials to mandate an unsafe practice for healthy people. Looks like China still rules the roost in Panama.

Sounds like full blown communism to me.
