On Wednesday, the Kitsap Public Health District reported 14 new positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the countywide total of positive cases to 856 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 213 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.

Of the 856 total cases, 25 have been reported on Bainbridge Island, 281 in Bremerton, 217 in Central Kitsap, 151 in North Kitsap and 182 in South Kitsap.
