Two cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed by the Kitsap Public Health District since last Friday, bringing the countywide total to 162 cases.

One case of COVID-19 was removed from the Kitsap County tally last Friday by the Kitsap Public Health District, after officials discovered that a case had been assigned to someone who lived outside of Kitsap County.

A total of 6,326 residents have tested negative — of those tested, the positive test rate has dropped to about 2 percent.

Of the 162 cases, 51 have been reported in Bremerton, 39 in South Kitsap, 33 in North Kitsap, 28 in Central Kitsap and 11 on Bainbridge Island. Two coronavirus-related deaths have been confirmed by Kitsap Public Health District as well.

20 – 29: 30

30 – 39: 19

40 – 49: 27

50 – 59: 41
