San Juan County is currently in Phase 2 of the Washington State Safe Start Plan. Transient accommodations are allowed to operate at up to 50% of their occupancy capacity. Restaurants and retail businesses, including hair salons, realtors, book stores, etc., are open with some restrictions. While certain group sizes and activities are restricted, our public lands, scenic vistas and quiet surroundings can be enjoyed by everyone.
We’ll keep you posted on our status! Stay healthy and help others do the same.

Caring for Lopez Island Health
The safety of our Lopez Island community is our highest priority. As we deal with the impact of COVID-19, the Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce is encouraging visitors and residents to practice standard safety measures that will help protect all of us: wash your hands frequently and well, wear a mask inside all businesses and outside where socially distancing restrictions cannot be met, and stay home if you are sick.
San Juan County continues to recommend that anyone coming to the islands, or returning from a trip to the mainland, no matter the length of the trip:
- Follow the Governor’s order limiting all non-essential travel
- Aggressive hand washing prior, during and following an allowed trip
- Follow a self-imposed 14-day quarantine after return to ensure COVID-19 containment
- Have supplies on hand for quarantine in advance of mainland travel
