Insane, but what can you expect from a Gov’t incapable of governing.

I am a resident of Panama and Colorado. I feel it is wrong to shut down construction in Panama. This really hurts the economy and workers. They have not shut down construction in Colorado and because most people are being careful about physical distancing, wearing a facial mask and not gathering in groups and the positive tests for Covid-19 is at 3.5%. Reconsider opening up construction projects ASAP.
