A restaurant in Downtown Plaza, Costa del Este was immediately closed  and the owners fined after a joint operation by  the Ministry of Commerce and Industries (Mici), the Ministry of Health, and the National Police

Israel Cedeño, director of the metropolitan health region, said that during the visit they found several faults in the biosecurity measures established to stop the spread of Covid-19.

On the premises, there was an agglomeration of people, with no adequate distancing.

In addition, people were without masks and the staff in the restaurant did not enforce compliance with their use.

Cedeño told La Prensa that the owners were given  15 days to correct the faults. If not, the file goes from the health center to the metropolitan region meaning the fine would increase Meanwhile "on Monday they must pay a fine" that was imposed on them.

Cedeño said that starting Saturday, they will carry out operations in the Veracruz area, after the reactivation, of family activities on beaches and rivers, were authorized.

Visitors will be randomly tested on the beaches to determine whether or not they have Covid-19, he added.

So now on top of running a business we have to be the health police as well? people know the rules, fine them if they break it,, don't push that job onto our backs to deal with people who don't care to play by the rules, if you see them come and fine them, NOT US. Do your job and let us do ours. you already force us to play doctor on every person who enters our doors, we have to clean their shoes, take their temperatures, have them wash their hands, write down all their information, make sure they stay 6 ft apart the whole time they are here, don't let them do this don't let them do that. you already cut our biz down to less then half open, but you can't wait to get your tax money can you?

You can't go anywhere here without a police or some other asshole ask questions and get in your business time to think of how to resist. The eatery in question should just close it's doors. Being in business in Panama just makes you a target. In Panama the government has rifles and the people have machetes, this is by design so the surfs have to obey, and they are!!

Hey Mr. Casual, are you capable of understanding that just because someone understands this plandemic is a psychological operation set up to usher in worldwide authoritarian technocratic rule has nothing to do with the American red team/blue team false dichotomy? Have you bothered to look beyond CNN for some insight into what is happening to our world?
