Reminder: COVID-19 still spreading in our community

Today, June 9, Kitsap Public Health District posted six new COVID-19 cases confirmed between June 6 and June 8. This is a reminder that COVID-19 is still spreading in our community.

While more businesses and activities are available under Phase 2, it is vital that we continue to take steps to protect our health and prevent COVID-19 from spreading:

  • Maintain six feet of distance from others in public whenever possible.
  • Wear a cloth face covering in places where physical distancing can’t be maintained. Be compassionate to people who cannot wear face coverings.
  • Wash hands frequently.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.

Contact tracing to slow the spread

Contact tracing is one of the best tools we have to slow the spread of COVID-19 and prevent more people from getting sick. This fact sheet from Kitsap Public Health District explains how it works. Effective contact tracing depends on everyone’s participation. If you get a call from Kitsap Public Health, please answer.

Communicating with our faces covered

Non-verbal cues are an important part of how we connect and communicate with each other. Many of these — a smile, a gentle touch, leaning in close to whisper a secret — are either impossible from six feet away, or hidden by our cloth face coverings. For those who are deaf or hard of hearing and routinely read lips and facial expressions, it may be even more difficult to communicate.

If it is hard for you to hear when someone is wearing a mask, the Washington State Department of Health offers these tips to help. Find more COVID-19 information in American Sign Language on the their website.
