Emergency Operations Center volunteer opportunities

Quarantine and isolation (Q&I) center volunteers are critical to the county's COVID-19 response. Volunteers support guests who are staying at the center because they are not able to safely quarantine or isolate at home.

The Q&I Center is located at the beautiful Pilgrim Firs Conference Center near Port Orchard. Volunteers are provided with safety training and personal protective equipment when on site and can choose how often they want to work. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 with full mobility. 

Take an inside look at the Q&I center in this YouTube video produced by Bremerton-Kitsap Access Television.

Register here to volunteer as an emergency worker supporting Q&I operations or other needs as #KitsapResponds to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Inslee announces emergency unemployment payments

Gov. Jay Inslee announced today the state will provide funding for almost 100,000 Washingtonians who will lose federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits.

This emergency payment will be issued by the Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) to all PUA claimants who were in active status the week ending Nov. 21, and will total $550 per claimant, which equates to roughly two weeks of benefits for most PUA recipients. ESD will have more information on their webpage later today.
