Despite all the restrictions that Covid-19 has caused, Boquete Health & Hospice is still here and committed to helping you when you need us.
Although we can't make in-home visits due to Covid 19, there are still lots of things we are doing with just some slight adjustments for everyone's safety:
Our equipment loan program is alive and well
• We are doing smaller blood drives
• We can run errands or provide meals
• We are here to answer any of your health-related topics
• And we are here when you need us for emotional support
So while we may be limited to only delivering meals to your doorstep or providing information and support through the phone or internet, we are not limited in our desire to do so. We are deeply committed to serving the community when and where we can and will be back to visiting you at home just as soon as it is safe to do so.

To all our BHH members and our community friends:
In response to the continued spread of the Covid 19 virus and its emerging variants in Panama, Boquete Health and Hospice has established a policy requiring that member volunteers who interact with the community, other team members or patients to be fully vaccinated or have started the vaccination process by having completed the first dose of a two dose regimen against the Covid-19 virus. On August 7, 2021, the BHH Council passed the following policies with the intention of further protecting our members and our community.
Effective immediately – all Boquete Health and Hospice personnel MUST wear masks continuously when representing BHH. A BHH volunteer will be appointed at every in-person meeting/event to ensure that all safety precautions are followed. If anyone notices that masks are not being worn or are being worn incorrectly, please ask the person not complying to adjust their mask.
Any volunteer of Boquete Health and Hospice representing and interacting with members of the community must be vaccinated. This applies to the Patient Care Coordinators, Equipment Team, Ambassadors, CPR Instructors, anyone leading a meeting or a class, the people representing BHH at the Tuesday Market. (These are just examples).
Starting with the September 2021 New Member Training Class – all new members must be vaccinated.
A dispensation can be granted by the Council upon receipt of a negative antigen test performed within the prior 48 hours of the event and written test results provided prior to the event. Prior to the event, the unvaccinated person must disclose to the audience that they are unvaccinated but have tested negative for the virus.
