Health District confirms 9 new cases of COVID-19 in Kitsap

125 cases have been confirmed so far this month

On Monday, the Kitsap Public Health District reported nine new positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the countywide total of positive cases to 823 since March.

A total of 40 cases are considered “active” by the district, meaning they are “confirmed and probable COVID cases … participating in daily monitoring.” Another 273 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.

In July, 422 infections were confirmed by the health district -more that month than all the other months combined. So far in August, 125 cases have been confirmed.

Of the 823 total cases, 25 have been reported on Bainbridge Island, 272 in Bremerton, 209 in Central Kitsap, 146 in North Kitsap and 171 in South Kitsap.
