No new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed by the Kitsap Public Health District in its Wednesday update, leaving the countywide total at 162 cases.

One case of COVID-19 was removed from the Kitsap County tally last Friday by the Kitsap Public Health District, after officials discovered that a case had been assigned to someone who lived outside of the county.

Of the 162 cases, 51 have been reported in Bremerton, 39 in South Kitsap, 33 in North Kitsap, 28 in Central Kitsap and 11 on Bainbridge Island. Two coronavirus-related deaths have been confirmed by Kitsap Public Health District as well.
