UV lights in action at quarantine and isolation site

Pilgrim Firs has been the primary quarantine and isolation site for residents in Kitsap County from the beginning of the pandemic. Rigorous protocols are used to clean rooms and interact with residents. Ultraviolet light systems are used to further disinfect rooms after people have been discharged.

“COVID-19 and other viruses are easily killed with exposure to UV light.” said Doug Blangsted, UV Unit Task Force Leader. “This portable system will become one of the tools we use to make certain Pilgrim Firs is a safe place for people to stay and work.

“We can also use the UV light to disinfect personal protective equipment and other equipment that is high-touch and needs to be reused. The system only takes a few minutes to zap the bugs, and we’re back in business.”

UV light systems were purchased on behalf of Kitsap County with CARES Act funding last year. Look for UV lights to be used in other settings in the near future.

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

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

As of Feb. 6, more than 940,000 doses of vaccine have been given across the state, which is nearly 80 percent of the 1,195,207 doses that have been delivered to providers and long-term care programs. Washington is currently averaging 26,857 vaccine doses given each day. This information can be found on the DOH data dashboard under the vaccines tab, which is updated three times per week.

Supply from the federal government continues to be the greatest challenge. This week providers requested more than 440,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, including 281,100 first doses and 165,750 second doses. In all, just over 200,000 doses were received from the federal government, which is less than half.

DOH has been told by the federal government that allocations for both Pfizer and Moderna will increase in the coming weeks and months. See the full news release for more details.


Reminder: Drive-thru COVID-19 testing site closed Feb. 15 for Presidents' Day

Testing at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds will be closed Monday, Feb. 15 for the Presidents' Day holiday.

In addition, the Kitsap County Emergency Operations Center is reducing the hours at COVID-19 testing sites on Thursday and canceling Friday and Saturday due to calls for snow, wind and cold temperatures. Those that have tests scheduled during the affected times will be notified.
