Kitsap County limits face-to-face services

In response to challenges from the coronavirus outbreak, Kitsap County government announced last week they have moved from face-to-face delivery of services to online services to protect the health and safety of staff and the public.

A new web page, kcowa.us/online, provides information on county offices including new operating hours, online services and other information about operations.

“We’re leveraging technology to continue to provide public services,” said Commissioner Charlotte Garrido, chair of the Board of County Commissioners, “We’re making every effort to support the local economy and keep our communities connected to the resources they need.”

Check the web page frequently for updates or call Kitsap1 at 360-337-5777 before heading to the county campus in Port Orchard or any of the other county facilities and offices. If you have business that must be conducted in-person, contact the appropriate department to schedule an appointment before coming to the Courthouse, Administration building or other facilities.
