COVID-19 daily cases


Record high of 37 COVID-19 cases reported today

The Kitsap Public Health District reported 37 positive COVID-19 test results today, July 30, the highest number of daily cases since the start of the pandemic. The cumulative number of cases for Kitsap County is at 618. The highest increase has been in the 20-39 age range with a total of 545 cases, representing 88% of the total number of positive cases reported.

Staying home is still safest. If you do go out, keep it quick, keep your distance and wear a face covering. Recreate and do business locally to avoid spreading the virus across county lines. Limit the number of people outside your household that you gather with every week. If you feel symptoms of COVID-19, get tested.


Kitsap County Safe Start report card update

Today, the Kitsap Public Health District released a new Safe Start report card including data from the Risk Assessment Dashboard as of July 28. The report card shows state targets to help evaluate when counties are ready to move forward under the Safe Start plan for COVID-19 recovery.

On July 28, Gov. Inslee extended the pause indefinitely on counties moving ahead in the Safe Start recovery plan. Counties will need to reapply once the pause is lifted. Kitsap County is in Phase 2 of Safe Start.

Inslee issues proclamation protecting personal information related to contact tracing

Gov. Jay Inslee issued a proclamation today to protect personal information related to the state's contact tracing efforts.

Proclamation 20-64 exempts personally identifiable information collected by COVID-19 case investigators from public disclosure. The proclamation does not provide additional exemptions for employees or volunteers who are conducting the contact tracing work, as the Public Records Act already exempts many types of personal information relating to public employees and volunteers. The proclamation will expire on August 29.

Effective contact tracing depends on participation. COVID-19 is spreading in Kitsap County, with a record number of 37 new cases added today. If you get a call from Kitsap Public Health, please answer. Your information will remain confidential.
