March 20th was the day of our return flight, which was cancelled, leaving us stranded in Dominican Republic. They did not notify us of another flight, and we are still stranded in Dominican Republic 3 weeks later. I have permanent residence in Panama and my spouse is a national. Now, even if we could get to Panama city, we can't travel to Bocas Town, as there are no flights by Air Panama. I think we would have to do 14 day quarantine before traveling home
