New COVID-19 Data Reports
Kitsap Public Health District has published new COVID-19 data reports for Kitsap County. Testing information is updated daily on our web site. More maps and charts are available in a weekly Kitsap COVID-19 Surveillance Report.

Social Distancing
While the number of COVID-19 cases reported in Kitsap continues to grow, our case investigators have noticed an encouraging trend. Kitsap residents who recently tested positive for COVID-19 are reporting fewer close contacts (people they have been in close proximity to) compared with cases we investigated prior to the statewide social distancing measures taking effect. This tells us social distancing is helping reduce the number of people exposed to the virus. It is critical that we continue to follow social distancing guidelines so we can slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. By slowing the spread of the illness, we can lessen the overall impact of the outbreak, protect our most vulnerable residents, and prevent overcrowding of our health care system.
