The City of Panama City is suspending all publicly-permitted events, facility reservations, sports and arts programming and informational meetings.

The action is being taken in response to a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that gatherings be limited to no more than ten people and maintain a distance of at least six (6) feet from other gatherings.

The City will work with event organizers to reschedule permitted-events already approved by the City Commission as needed at no additional cost.

This only applies to events that are permitted through the City of Panama City.

The outdoor areas of the City’s parks are currently open; however, the City requires that citizens to practice social distancing and reduce gatherings to no more than ten people.

Residents are encouraged to use their discretion when it comes to attending public events or parks.

Beginning June 16, 2020, the St. Andrews Marina Store will reopen daily from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
