The authors describe the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) response to COVID-19 on Vashon Island, a rural area located in the State of Washington. The MRC response on the island included public engagement, SARS-CoV-2 testing, contact tracing, vaccination, and community support and can serve as a model for other rural locations. The authors found that Puget Sound communities were protected by their geography, and that in conjunction with the volunteer MRC program, Vashon Island had the lowest cumulative COVID-19 case rate in the county.
