Kitsap County officials have found two sites on Bainbridge Island for potential use as quarantine sites to “supplement health care capacity during COVID-19,” the city of Bainbridge Island said in an announcement Friday.

The city said staff are working to support the county’s review of the two options “and will assist with planning and implementation if these resources are activated. The decision related to these plans is ongoing.”

Bainbridge Island City Hall will stay closed to the public until April 3, city officials announced Friday.

The closure also includes Bainbridge Island Municipal Court in Rolling Bay and the police station in downtown Winslow.

Officials said city services can be accessed through the web, by email and by telephone. (Go to https://www.bainbridgewa.gov/1213/COVID-19 for details.)
