Correction on July 30 COVID-19 update

In yesterday's COVID-19 update, we reported a total of 545 positive cases for the 20-39 age range. This was a miscalculation. Those 545 cases represent the rate per 100,000 figure displayed on the Kitsap Health District's dashboard, which is different from total cases. 

The rate per 100,000 is a tool used to compare how a health condition is affecting population groups of different sizes. It helps assess if some groups are being disproportionately affected. The spread of COVID-19 in the 20-39 age range remains on the rise.

Kitsap Transit fare collection resumes tomorrow

Starting on Saturday, August 1, Kitsap Transit will resume collecting fares on all of its services. Kitsap Transit temporarily stopped collecting fares on March 23 to minimize interaction at the farebox and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Since then Kitsap Transit has taken steps to protect the health of its passengers and employees, including mandatory face coverings, daily disinfection of the fleet and restricting passenger loads. Transparent physical barriers between the operator’s area and the entry door will enable fare collection to resume. Visit Kitsap Transit's COVID-19 page for more information.
