Staying home is still safest

Everyone has a role to play in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping Kitsap’s recovery on track. It’s important to continue staying home as much as possible and doing your part to keep everyone healthy.

When you do go out, stay six feet away from others, wear a cloth face covering, wash your hands, and cover coughs and sneezes. Recreate and do business locally to avoid spreading the virus across county lines. If you feel symptoms of COVID-19, get tested.
