Hi! Many folks are coming to Panama from countries where COVID rapid tests are easily available (and often FREE!).
In panama you cannot purchase rapid tests (the government, in a move many have attributed to trying to keep money going to the more expensive testing clinics, declared the population of panama was not smart enough to test themselves).
But you can bring in rapid tests! These can be very useful, and I would encourage everyone to test regularly before, during, and after the conference to help keep our community as safe as possible! In order to help us, I would like to request, especially if you have rapid tests freely available to you, to PLEASE BRING EXTRA COVID TESTS TO PANAMA!
We can use them during the event, and then if any are left over, you can donate them to Dinalab, here in Panama, where we have been operating as a free anarchist Covid testing site for gamboa.
