Since the last update on Fri­day, May, total cas­es in San Juan Coun­ty have increased from 179 to 180.

There are four close con­tacts of pos­i­tive cas­es cur­rent­ly in active quarantine.

There is one new case on San Juan Island since the last update. This new case is a close con­tact a pre­vi­ous­ly pos­i­tive case. The ini­tial trans­mis­sion source is relat­ed to off-island travel.

There are three pos­i­tive cas­es under active mon­i­tor­ing on San Juan Island at this time.

There are no new cas­es on Orcas, Lopez or Shaw island since the last update. There are no con­firmed pos­i­tive cas­es under active mon­i­tor­ing on those islands either. 


Kids 12 and over are now eli­gi­ble for vaccination.

The coun­ty has sched­uled five clin­ics with the Pfiz­er vac­cine tar­get­ed specif­i­cal­ly at these kids and their fam­i­lies, though any­one unvac­ci­nat­ed may sign up.

Details on these clin­ics and a num­ber of sin­gle-shot walk-up clin­ics for adults are avail­able at

These clin­ics will be the very best chance for island kids 12 and old­er to get vac­ci­nat­ed. There may not be future 12+ clin­ics held in the islands.

If you are an adult and not vac­ci­nat­ed, now is the time to do so. Safe­ty pre­cau­tions will be lift­ing rapid­ly and risk will increase as well. Details on ongo­ing clin­ics avail­able at the link above.
