In letter to Gov. Inslee, Commissioners request Kitsap move to Phase 2 of COVID recovery plan

Kitsap County Commissioners sent a letter today to Governor Jay Inslee in response to the Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery plan, conveying their frustration over its inconsistencies, the regional approach being used, Kitsap’s designation and the metrics applied that are required to move from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

In the letter, Commissioners request the state move Kitsap County to the Puget Sound region of its phased recovery plan, which includes Snohomish, King and Pierce counties, and advance the county to Phase 2 as were those counties Jan. 28. Commissioners also ask that metrics be revised to better reflect the public health conditions for communities of all sizes. Kitsap County is currently designated in the Northwest region with Clallam, Jefferson and Mason counties.
