Just encountered one of your bicycle tour groups here on Lopez Island...
The San Juan Islands are still in Stage 2 lockdown, meaning only essential travel.
We residents have had to muzzle our own Visitors Bureau, who wrongly promoted the islands as a 4th of July destination vacation, assuming Governor Inslee would promote us to Stage 3 by that time. As we all know, he did not.
Please, do us the favor of following the Governor’s lead and stop promoting non-essential tourism right now. Our positive COVID-19 cases have already started to climb.

Sincerely, Janet Yang
