DOH reporting another new case for San Juan County: Total now 15

The number of positive COVID-19 test results in San Juan County according to the state Department of Health is 15. This number was released just late on April 17, 2020. The state doesn't show the results by island.

The number according to San Juan County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is 14.  Broken down by island that's eight positive test results on Orcas Island, five on San Juan Island and one on Lopez Island.

The EOC releases numbers around 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The latest results from the state will be included in the local county total then. (San Juan Islander editor has messaged Dr. James. Any new info will be added to this site ASAP after it is received.)

The DOH has a comprehensive list of results by county on its website. Also included are the statistics for results by race, gender, age and number of hospitalizations. 


Here is a list of the cases so far

[EDITOR's NOTE: Links to information that cases #4, #9 and #10 have generously and thoughtfully shared with the community are posted. Sharing the info is very brave on their part as there have been reports in other locales of harrassment and worse. If that type of problem arises in the San Juan Islands, we'll stop reporting such details. Thanks for your cooperation.]
