COVID-19 in Kitsap: A year in review

Today marks a year to the date when the first coronavirus case was reported in Kitsap County. A day later, the first edition of this COVID-19 Daily Bulletin was sent out. A week later, local public schools closed.

While the pandemic has turned out to be longer and deadlier than could have been anticipated a year ago, the people of Kitsap have remained resilient. View this timeline on the Kitsap County Emergency Management blog to take a look back at some of the major milestones in the pandemic in Kitsap County.

As of today, over 45,000 Kitsap residents have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 10% of our population, over 28,000 residents, are now fully vaccinated.

It's not over, but we have made a lot of progress. As individuals, we must continue to be vigilant and practice the 3 W's: Wear a mask, Wash your hands, and Watch your distance (6 feet apart from others who do not live in your household). These three habits can help you protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Applications open March 12 for Bainbridge small business assistance grants; webinar offered March 10

The City of Bainbridge Island is making $200,000 available for eligible small businesses, cooperatives, and nonprofits negatively impacted by COVID-19. The application period opens March 12.

The Kitsap Economic Development Alliance (KEDA) is partnering with the City of Bainbridge Island to administer a small business grant program in response to COVID-19. Grant eligibility is dependent on the business's ability to demonstrate significant negative financial impact due to COVID-19, backed up by documentation.

Businesses may receive between $5,000 – $10,000 based upon eligibility, COVID-19 financial impacts and the number of total applications received by the City.

Grant funds, if awarded, will help organizations remain in operation and mitigate negative financial impact from COVID-19. Funds may be used to reimburse expenses incurred during the pandemic impact timeframe (beginning March 1, 2020) or for non-capital, non-entertainment expenses that will be incurred in 2021.

KEDA will offer a webinar at 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 10 to review the grant application process and timeline. Visit for details.
