Health District confirms 20 new cases of COVID-19 in Kitsap County

10 of the new 20 cases were in South Kitsap

On Friday, the Kitsap Public Health District reported 20 new positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the countywide total of positive cases to 896 since March.

A total of 64 cases are considered “active” by the district, meaning they are “confirmed and probable COVID cases … participating in daily monitoring.” Another 230 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 whom have been confirmed since late July, according to the health district. The district is currently not reporting total negative tests or the percent of positive tests due to technical difficulties from the state Department of Health.

In July, 422 infections were confirmed by the health district -more that month than all the other months combined. So far in August, 198 cases have been confirmed.

Of the 896 total cases, 25 have been reported on Bainbridge Island, 291 in Bremerton, 225 in Central Kitsap, 156 in North Kitsap and 199 in South Kitsap.

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

0 – 9: 87 (7%)

10 – 19: 118 (9%)
