Health District confirms 10 new COVID-19 cases in Kitsap County

Negative tests reach over 32,600

On Friday, the Kitsap Public Health District confirmed 10 new positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the countywide total of positive cases to 1,093 since March.

A total of 36 cases are considered “active” by the district, meaning they are “confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases … participating in daily monitoring.” Another 102 were categorized as “active contacts” or individuals determined to be close contacts of a lab-confirmed case and are participating in daily monitoring. The total number of negative tests is 32,605.

Earlier this week the district reported two new COVID-19 related deaths, bringing the countywide total to 12 since March. Both had underlying health conditions and were over 65. Nine of the deaths have happened since late July.

In July, 422 infections were confirmed by the health district -more that month than any other month since the pandemic began. In August, 311 cases were confirmed.

Of the 1,080 total cases, 36 have been reported on Bainbridge Island, 341 in Bremerton, 273 in Central Kitsap, 175 in North Kitsap and 268 in South Kitsap.
