Give thanks not COVID-19

We need to find new ways to celebrate Thanksgiving this year so we can stay connected while keeping our family, friends, and community healthy.

Kitsap Public Health strongly encourages Kitsap residents to celebrate at home with members of their own household. Gatherings of any size increase your risk for getting or spreading COVID-19.

The Washington State Department of Health recommends people who want to visit family for Thanksgiving should limit themselves to only the most essential activities now, and quarantine for two weeks before even a small outdoor gathering. Thanksgiving is two weeks from today.

If you choose to attend or host a holiday gathering, take steps to make the situation as safe as possible for everyone involved.

COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan update from the Washington State Department of Health

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) continues to make progress with COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning efforts.

The department is hopeful that a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19 will be available before the end of the year. While there was encouraging news this week from one manufacturer, it’s important to remember no vaccine is approved for use in the United States yet. Regardless of when the vaccine comes out, people need to keep wearing masks and social distancing. 

DOH continues to identify and enroll provider sites and solidify plans for how to provide vaccine to groups who are disproportionately affected by COVID-19. See the news release for more details.
