New restrictive measures implemented in various sectors of the country

In the provinces of Bocas del Toro, Darién and in the Ngäbe-Buglé region, no restrictive measures were implemented due to the low contagion rate.
The Minister of Health of Panama, Luis Francisco Sucre, announced the new mobility measures that will be implemented at the national level.

After the permanent and constant increase in COVID-19 cases, as of June 21, Panama Oeste, the Pacora sector in Panama East, and all the townships of Panama Norte (Ernesto Córdoba Campos, Chilibre, Alcalde Díaz, and Las Cumbres), will have a curfew from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am from Monday to Sunday, so shops must close at 9:00 pm.


In the province of Vergauas the curfew will be maintained from Monday to Saturday from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am, and the total quarantine remains on Sundays, without working hours or mobility that will include from Saturday at 10:00 pm until Monday at 4:00 am

In addition, from June 20, a Sunday quarantine will be implemented in the Atalaya district.

While in the district of Las Palmas the quarantine measure will be lifted and curfew will be from 12:00 pm to 4:00 am


The curfew is implemented from Monday to Sunday, from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am, and the closing of businesses at 9:00 pm, starting on June 21.

In addition, from June 20, a Sunday quarantine will be implemented in the Aguadulce district, without working hours or mobility from Saturday at 10:00 p.m. to Monday at 4:00 a.m.


From June 21, the curfew will be from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am, Monday through Sunday, only in the district of Colón. The closing time of shops will be 9:00 pm

Ocú, Los Pozos, Pedasí and Pocrí are excepted from these measures, which will maintain the curfew from 12:00 am to 4:00 am


In Chiriquí the measures will remain. The curfew is maintained from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am from Monday to Saturday, as is the quarantine on Sunday. The closing of shops will be at 9:00 pm

The districts of Tolé, San Lorenzo, and Remedios are exempt from these measures, where the Sunday quarantine is lifted and the curfew is relaxed, which will be from 12:00 am to 4:00 am


Restrictive measures were not implemented in these areas of the country due to the low contagion rate they maintain.

On the other hand, they ask the population not to visit the Guna Yala region due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases.

As of Monday 21, all Panamanians who enter the country and carry their complete vaccination card and a negative COVID-19 test, less than 48 hours, either from where they come or from Panama, should not undergo quarantine of 3 days.
