COVID-19 case reporting update

On June 10, Kitsap Public Health updated its data dashboards to display COVID-19 cases by specimen collection date (the date a healthcare provider collected a sample from the patient for testing). Cases were previously displayed by the date they were confirmed by a laboratory.

In some cases, the specimen collection date for a case is several days earlier than the lab confirmation date. The overall number of cases reported for Kitsap County remains the same. The reporting change was made to more closely align with the state Department of Health's dashboards.

Earlier today, Kitsap Public Health District Health Officer Dr. Susan Turner joined state Sen. Emily Randall and Tacoma-Pierce County Health Officer Dr. Anthony Chen for a Zoom conversation about COVID-19 response. Watch the conversation on Facebook.


Inslee extends proclamation protecting high-risk workers

Gov. Jay Inslee announced the extension of a proclamation June 9 giving high-risk workers the right to protect themselves from COVID-19 without jeopardizing their employment status or loss of income.

The proclamation provides older workers and those with underlying health conditions a series of rights and protections, including:

  • The choice of an alternative work assignment, including telework, alternative or remote work locations if feasible, and social distancing measures.
  • The ability to use any accrued leave or unemployment benefits if an alternative work assignment is not feasible and the employee is unable to safely work. Employers must maintain health insurance benefits while high-risk employees are off the job.
  • Employers are prohibited from permanently replacing high-risk employees.

The proclamation was extended through August 1, 2020.
