The American Citizen Services Unit would like to alert U.S. citizens residing and/or traveling in the Azuero Region about a water contamination issue. Please visit the following link to see the announcement that Panama’s Ministry of Health (MINSA) placed on their facebook page: www.facebook.com/minsapanama.

This announcement included recommendations from Panama’s Red Cross regarding water usage in this region. The Red Cross guidance states that water in this region is not currently suitable for drinking, cooking, bathing children under age 2, or consumption by pets. The guidance states that water in this region can be used for bathing, washing clothes, household cleaning and watering plants.
