Celebrate safely: A message from Kitsap Public Health District

Kitsap Public Health officials are urging residents to exercise caution over the Fourth of July weekend, as the number of COVID-19 cases reported across the county and state continues to increase. Eleven new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Kitsap County on Tuesday, June 30th, bringing the county’s total for June to 71. Only 11 cases were reported in Kitsap in the month of May. 

“We have reached a pivotal moment in our response to this pandemic,” Kitsap Public Health District Health Officer Dr. Susan Turner said. “As case numbers rise, we must redouble our efforts as a community to control the spread of COVID-19 and protect our most vulnerable residents. That starts with each of us taking deliberate steps to safeguard our health and the health of people close to us.”

With the holiday weekend approaching, residents are strongly advised to:

  • Limit gatherings to no more than five people outside of your immediate household. Smaller is safer.
  • Keep travel local. Staying home is the safest option.
  • Stay six feet apart from others. Outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor gatherings.
  • Wear a face covering in situations where staying six feet apart is difficult and anytime you are indoors with people from outside your immediate household.
  • Stay home if you feel sick, even if your illness is mild. Attending a gathering will put other people’s health at risk. Call your health provider immediately to get tested.

“We are all eager to reconnect with family and friends, and we know it is difficult to stay apart, especially during a holiday,” Dr. Turner said. “We can still celebrate the holiday, but our celebrations need to look different this year.”

Give yourself a hand

We’ve focused on staying home over the past few months because that is the most effective way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Now that we’re out and about more often, we want to maintain physical distance and good hand washing, too.

Remember, the virus can also be transmitted from the surfaces our hands touch. To help stop the spread of COVID-19, keep these three steps to good hand hygiene in mind:

  • Wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds.
  • Use hand sanitizer when you can’t wash.
  • Keep hands away from your face, especially your eyes and nose.

When out and about, stay six feet away from those not in your household and give yourself a hand – wash frequently.
