COVID-19 daily cases


Kitsap Public Health reports encouraging case trends

While testing remains a concern, public health officials are encouraged by a gradual decrease in the rate of new COVID-19 cases reported in Kitsap County. 

A key measure of COVID-19 activity is the rate of cases reported per 100,000 population reported over a 14-day period. The rate in Kitsap rose as high as 86 cases per 100,000 at the beginning of August. The rate fell to 35 cases per 100,000 in the most recent update. Though improved, the rate is still higher than the Safe Start target of 25 cases per 100,000 established by the state. 

The percent of total COVID-19 tests that are positive dropped to 2.6% last week, down from a high of about 6% in July. This is another indicator COVID-19 activity could be decreasing. 

See the Kitsap County COVID-19 Risk Assessment Dashboard for more detailed data.
