Weekly Covid Case Update

Since the last update on Friday August 27th, there have been sixteen new confirmed cases in San Juan County. Current total case count is now 266.

Of these sixteen new cases, initial investigations indicate that five appear to have occurred in fully vaccinated individuals. San Juan County numbers continue to confirm that vaccinated individuals are less likely to become infected than those who are vaccinated (remember, the vast majority of island residents are vaccinated). 

There are approximately eight unvaccinated close contacts of positive cases who are currently in two-week quarantine. Note that vaccinated close contacts do NOT need to quarantine and this number would be far higher if not for the high vaccination rate in San Juan County.

  • Lopez Island: There are no new cases on Lopez Island since the last update. There is one positive case under active monitoring on Lopez Island.
  • Orcas Island: There are ten new cases on Orcas Island since the last update. There are eleven positive cases under active monitoring on Orcas Island.

  • Shaw Island: There are no new cases on Shaw Island since the last update. There are no positive cases under active monitoring on Shaw Island.
