The new cases have pushed the total number of COVID-19 infections in Jefferson County to 151.

Two of the new cases were found in Port Townsend residents; both were women in their 20s. The other case involved a man in his 30s from the mid-county area.

No deaths in the county have been linked to the coronavirus.

A total of 12,611 patients have been tested for the coronavirus since the start of the pandemic, and 12,414 have tested negative, according to Jefferson County Public Health.

Test results are still pending for 46 people.

Some puzzling math in that last paragraph:

Most are men (77), BUT 77 women positive, then we have 77 + 77 =151??? I don't think so...

It would be more helpful if source of infection was identified. Are these from parties in homes? Are they from exposure from eating inside restaurants? Are they from a church group having meetings unmasked as I've heard one in Port Hadlock does? Know some were from Halloween, so we are probably really in trouble next week.
