The Kitsap County Emergency Management said possible quarantine sites for those with COVID-19 won’t be announced until they have been established.

The city of Bainbridge Island said earlier Friday that two locations on Bainbridge Island had been found by Kitsap County for potential use as quarantine sites to “supplement health care capacity during COVID-19.”

Bainbridge officials did not say where those sites are located on the island.

In an email Friday to the Review, Dave Rasmussen, spokesman for Kitsap County Emergency Management, said when those sites have been established “to assist and support those impacted by COVID-19 in Kitsap County, there will be an announcement.”

A total of 74 people have died from coronavirus in Washington state through March 19, and 1,376 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed.

In Kitsap County, there have been 12 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including four on Bainbridge Island.
