Weekly outlook from Kitsap Public Health

Kitsap Public Health's Weekly Outlook newsletter is now available. View the full report here or download a printable PDF to share with others.

Here are key points:

  • A steady increase in cases and uptick in hospitalizations in recent weeks indicates that COVID-19 is spreading widely in our county and more residents are becoming severely ill. 
  • As of April 5, 36% of Kitsap residents 16 and older have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 65% of residents 65 and older have received their first dose. Starting April 15, everyone 16 and older will be eligible to get the vaccine.
  • 153 COVID-19 cases were reported in our county in the most recent week with full data available (March 21-March 27): 2 cases in Bainbridge, 33 in Bremerton, 41 in Central Kitsap, 10 in North Kitsap, 67 in South Kitsap
  • As COVID-19 activity increases, testing remains critical. Test results allow us to track the spread of COVID-19 in our community and notify people who may have been exposed so they can take steps to prevent spreading the virus to others. Learn more at

Caregiver support program offers financial assistance

The Kinship Caregiver Support Services Program, administered through Kitsap Community Resources, provides financial assistance for those - including grandparents - raising minor relatives (18 years or younger) who need additional resources necessary to stabilize the family, especially in helping to lessen the impacts of COVID-19. 

The financial, legal, and emotional issues of raising a relative's child can be challenging. Services and support can be a lifesaver. The program helps support the purchase of clothing, food, childcare, relocation and utilities. Find out more by calling Catherine at (360) 473-2046 or email An informational flyer is available here


farm grants

State recovery grants available to farmers' markets, agritourism, shellfish growers, breweries

Washington State Department of Agriculture Relief and Recovery grants are available for small businesses in four sectors:

  • Shellfish growers
  • Farmers market organizations
  • Agritourism farms
  • Small breweries, cideries, wineries, and distilleries (dependent upon tap or tasting room sales).

These four sectors were selected for assistance as a way to bolster the health and diversity of the Washington state economy by providing support to disproportionately impacted and previously underserved agricultural sectors.

WSDA will provide nearly $15 million in small business assistance grants to help agriculture businesses and organizations in sectors that have been economically hurt due to marketplace disruptions created by the necessary public health measures during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

WSDA will award grants to qualifying applicants of approximately $15,000. Applications will be accepted April 9-26 and award payments made by the end of May. For details, click here.
