Panama prepares for the reopening of the gaming sector on March 6

 Panamanian authorities have made a tour of several casinos in Panama City to verify compliance with the biosafety regulations implemented for the reopening of the sector on March 6th.
 Referring to the inspection and verification tour, Israel Cedeño, regional director of Metropolitan Health, has confirmed that the gaming establishments comply “fully with all the biosafety regulations, the use of screens between machines, the cleanliness and biosecurity of their employees.” In this regard, he emphasizes that the investment made will minimize the risk of contagion.

Likewise, Omar Montilla, vice minister of commerce and industries, agrees with the representative of the Ministry of Health (MINSA, for its acronym in Spanish) and ensures that the casinos meet the requirements for the activity to develop normally.

On behalf of the sector, Jorge Ibañez, CIRSA manager, said: "The visit has been positive, since MINSA leaves with a satisfactory idea with biosafety measures, which leaves us calm for the reopening on March 6th”.

Among the biosafety measures implemented, we highlight the following:
