Health District confirms 14 new COVID-19 cases Friday

Countywide total since pandemic began is 805

On Friday, the Kitsap Public Health District reported 14 new positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the countywide total of positive cases to 805 since March.

A total of 34 cases are considered “active” by the district, meaning they are “confirmed and probable COVID cases … participating in daily monitoring.” Another 267 were categorized as “active contacts” or individuals determined to be close contacts of a lab-confirmed case and are participating in daily monitoring.

A total of seven people in Kitsap County have had COVID-19 associated deaths, four of which have been confirmed since late July, according to the health district. The health district is currently not reporting total negative tests or the percent of positive tests due to technical difficulties from the state Department of Health.

In July, 422 infections were confirmed by the health district -more that month than all the other months combined. So far in August, 93 cases have been confirmed.

Of the 805 total cases, 24 have been reported on Bainbridge Island, 267 in Bremerton, 204 in Central Kitsap, 145 in North Kitsap and 165 in South Kitsap.

The age breakdown for confirmed positive cases per 100,000 in the past 30 days are as follows:

0 – 9: 94

10 – 19: 155

20 – 29: 372

30 – 39: 258

40 – 49: 178

50 – 59: 106

60 – 69: 81
