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

Of these 16 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.
