Kitsap COVID-19 cases rise to seven

Two new cases were confirmed Monday; Bainbridge resident and South Kitsap resident

In a Monday afternoon update, the Kitsap Public Health District has now confirmed two new cases of COVID-19 in the county, which brings the total count to seven.

The update came after Gov. Jay Inslee announced Sunday evening that he would be placing a temporary ban on restaurants, bars and gatherings of more than 50 people in an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19.

The patients in the two new cases of COVID-19 announced Monday were described as a South Kitsap resident in their 50s and a Bainbridge Island resident in their 40s. Bainbridge Island now has three of the seven confirmed COVID-19 cases in the county and South Kitsap has two. The other two cases involve a Bremerton resident in their 50s and a Central Kitsap resident in their 40s, both of which were confirmed on Sunday.

The health district also noted that it had conducted 113 tests for area residents that have been confirmed as negative.

A total of 769 cases of COVID-19 have been found in Washington state through Sunday, and 42 deaths have been attributed to the virus.
