Health District confirms 16 new COVID-19 cases in Kitsap since yesterday

Countywide total of virus cases since pandemic began is 773

On Tuesday, the Kitsap Public Health District reported 16 new positive cases of COVID-19 since yesterday, bringing the countywide total of positive cases to 773 since March.

A total of 70 cases are considered “active” by the district, meaning they are “confirmed and probable COVID cases … participating in daily monitoring.” Another 359 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.

Total negative test results and percentages of virus cases were unavailable in Tuesday’s update as the health district notes negative test results have not been updated since Aug. 1 due to the state Department of Health experiencing issues with its reporting system.

In July, 422 infections were confirmed by the health district -more that month than all the other months combined. So far in August, 75 cases have been confirmed.

Of the 773 total cases, 24 have been reported on Bainbridge Island, 259 in Bremerton, 199 in Central Kitsap, 140 in North Kitsap and 151 in South Kitsap.

The age breakdown for confirmed positive cases per 100,000 in the past 30 days are as follows:

0 – 9: 90

10 – 19: 155

20 – 29: 364

30 – 39: 265

40 – 49: 178

50 – 59: 103

60 – 69: 73

70 – 79: 78
